7th grade student discovers career interests with JA It’s My Future®

It’s never too early to start thinking about potential careers!

Meet Andrea, an incoming seventh grader. She discovered new career interests during Session Two of JA It’s My Future® held at YMCA’s summer camp.

Junior Achievement It's My Future

She and her classmates took a “career cluster inventory.” Different career fields and their subcategories were displayed on posters throughout the room. For this activity, the students went poster to poster writing down which jobs appealed to them in the different categories.

On the “Health Science” poster, the “Therapeutic Services” career cluster caught Andrea’s attention. She never considered that career field before and helping people in that capacity sounded exciting to her.

Andrea is now looking into becoming either a physical therapist or registered nurse. With her sense of determination, we’re confident Andrea will be successful no matter her career choice!

Choosing jobs out of career clusters that suit their interests.

In JA It’s My Future, students explore career clusters and determine which professions suit their interests.
