Can you imagine?

You might have heard that teens don’t have the same capacity for future-thinking as adults do. However, delivering knowledge in just the right way, a teen can think about their future more than we might give them credit for.

That text came from the mom of a client of mine. She was so surprised to get a seemingly random text from her daughter asking to start a retirement account, but it wasn’t random. Her daughter was in our coaching session when she sent it.

She had gone through the first two modules of Life Quest® which helped her name her values and solidify her priorities. Just before the career exploration module comes the money module. Ava learned that week about how compound interest works and what it looks like in a retirement account. She learned that the earlier you start the better. Taking just a fraction of what she makes with a high school job and putting it into an account can have a big impact later on. 

You might have heard that teens don’t have the same capacity for future-thinking as adults do. However, delivering knowledge in just the right way, a teen can think about their future more than we might give them credit for.

My vision for life after high school is definitely more clear and laid out. I feel prepared and ready to take on whatever comes. It’s a great and very eye opening experience. I definitely recommend Life Quest if you don’t know much about your interests or the college process.

This program was different because it didn’t just focus on college but what to do after I graduated from high school.  I feel pretty good about the occupations I picked, I really like them. I realized that there’s more to college than just applying and picking a major. I had a good experience and it really helped me.

Prior to this, I hadn't received any career guidance. Now, I'm feeling positive and inspired by the occupations I collected. I am less stressed in regard to making decisions for my future and I feel that I have a good game plan for pursuing my career and finances. The program gave me clear options and Emma is so lovely. I would recommend this program.
