How Can We Help Young People Find Careers They Care About? It Starts With a Conversation.

Two Black women hug in front of the Roadtrip Nation green RV.

But first — what do we mean by “career conversations”?

How do we know that career conversations work?

1. Expanded Career Exposure & Engagement

2. Improved Career & Communication Skills

3. Stronger Connection to Education

4. Growth in Self-Perception

5. Greater Well-Being and Sense of Purpose

6. Increased Social Capital

OK, that all sounds pretty great! So how can I help young people have these kinds of conversations?

1. Help them connect

2. Encourage them to explore

3. Support them as they reach out

Roadtrip Nation is an educational nonprofit organization that wants to help everyone define their own roads in life.
