For renewed support of the Case Manager of the Middle School Transition Initiative Road Map project who will work with youths aged 11 to 15 and their caregivers to help them to better map their career paths while transitioning from middle school to high school. The Case Manager will provide: one-on-one counseling; workshops; resource materials; and referrals related to the selection of a high school major – and the high schools which offer coursework in that major. Help with the completion of high school applications will also be provided following in-person and virtual visits to high school campuses and high school fairs. The Case Manager will help each youth and their caregivers to develop a long-term plan to map a path from middle school to the beginning of his or her prime working years. Youths and caregivers will better understand the importance of long-term career planning, how to use reference materials to support their planning, and the much-increased lifelong earnings potential, and improved job satisfaction, that may result.
