Young People of the Next Generation’s mission is to provide you with the information you need to research the many career options available, each individual career’s economic prospects, the training and skills that are required and how to pay for that education.
We formed YPNG to help with career planning because making a good career choice is one of the most important decisions a young person will ever make. This choice determines how you spend the majority of time throughout your adult life as well as your ability to support yourself and your family. You want this decision to be a good economic one but also one that allows you to develop and grow your talents.
One of the ways we help you choose a career is by providing you with information on a wide variety of career opportunities described in articles, podcasts and video interviews with YPNG Mentors, successful people with experience in a variety of careers. YPNG Mentors sharing their experiences is a resource that will help you as you research and choose your own career path.
