Be an Intern or Apprentice


Being an intern or an apprentice gives your teen the opportunity to "test drive" a career before making a commitment. While many internships and apprenticeships are unpaid, they provide valuable experience in the work force, and may give your child the push he needs to excel in his area of choice.

Additionally, internships and apprenticeships only focus on what applies to the field, making this a good choice for a teen that might not have been fond of the "general studies" aspect of high school.
