Notes from the Backpack: Your Child's Career Exploration Starts Now

We often ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but how often do we help them figure out the answer? We invited Jean Eddy, Executive Director of the American Student Assistance (ASA) and ASA’s “Solve It” contest winner and high school student, Elliana Cabellon, to talk about career exploration. They share how families can help kids follow their passions, plan for their futures and explore STEM career pathways. Listen now.
