SOUTH MILWAUKEE — It is never too early to think about a career.  While many young people may change their minds as they grow and learn, it’s good to know what the opportunities are and what it takes to achieve them. A workshop called “My Life! My Plan!” is designed to pair students with mentors to explore careers.

“I definitely want a job that’s going to set me up for success in my future. I’m looking into pharmacy or maybe a lawyer,” Jessica Agalliu, a sophomore at South Milwaukee High School said.

On Tuesday, September 18th, Agalliu and dozens of other students took part in the workshop. The students were paired with mentors to explore careers and develop a plan – discussing which classes to take, which schools to attend and how to develop the skill sets necessary for that field.
