Helping High Schoolers Find Their Career Paths

Vol. 120, Prg. 1–5
June 23–27, 2014

Are you wondering how to help your child find their true vocation? This week on Home School Heartbeat, Mike Smith is joined by one of HSLDA’s high school consultants, Becky Cooke, to share ways for you to help your children discover their own interests and develop those interests into careers.

“Parents and their teens can talk together on possible volunteer projects, internships, or job shadowing to participate in during the high school years. These opportunities will give teens real-life experience in careers they think they want to pursue.”—Becky Cooke

Becky Cooke and her husband Jim homeschooled their three children from kindergarten until college using an eclectic assortment of teaching resources.

After sending her children off to university, Becky helped develop HSLDA’s Homeschooling Thru High School program including its high school website. She brings a wealth of experience and friendly advice to share with families who are navigating these challenging, yet exciting years. In her “spare” time, she edits books, articles, and magazines for several authors and publishers, is active in Precepts upon Precepts Bible Study, and mentors international collegiate women studying in the Washington, D.C. area.
