Asking today’s youth what their individual career goals are is foundational when empowering them. First, it shows them that we are interested in what they hope to achieve, and that we will be there to support them. Second, it also encourages young individuals to consider their objectives. Many young individuals today don’t have a career or task-specific goal in mind, and even more are finding it hard to maintain clarity in what those objectives are with the community situation. Encouraging a young person to think about both their current and future objectives reminds them to maintain optimism towards what’s ahead of them, giving them a sense of control and choice.
