We all want students to find fulfilling careers that pay a living wage, and there are a number of things we can do to prepare them for this throughout their educational journey. In this session, we will discuss strategies to help students find what they like, what they are good at, what the world needs, and what they can get paid to do. These approaches can be applied at the classroom, district, or regional level, as we work together to help all students discover and pursue their ikigai, or purpose.

Audience: Elementary Teacher, Middle Teacher, High School Teacher, Elementary Counselor, Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor, Elementary Administrators, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, Superintendent, District Office Leaders
