This past February the Youth leaders were able to organize and hold a College and Career Fair for our youth students. Whether you are just entering high school or about to enter college, college can be overwhelming. Especially the process of getting into college and what you need to do to look good for the admissions board to be accepted. During that process most students aren’t really given an opportunity to think about what they want to study in college for their major, or even what they want to do as a career. A lot of students go to college simply because that is what they are told to do. It’s just another stage in life that everyone needs to take. However, most students that come into college have very little idea about what major they want to enter and struggle to find one that they like or grinds through a major they don’t enjoy because it was what was pushed onto them. Some may even wonder why they came to college and spend money for something they don’t even want to do. The intent of this fair was to offer insight and a broader perspective for our students about the opportunities that are offered after high school- whether that is through college or straight into the work force. Hopefully inspiring our students to be able dream bigger and take on bigger goals. One of the ideas that we really tried to emphasize is that college is not for everyone. Not everyone has to go to a 4-year university. Some may go off to Community College, or some may join the work force and attend a trade school. 32 순례자의샘터 www.soonsam.org
