Low-income and first-generation students in Los Angeles will soon have access to Naviance, thanks to the Youth Policy Institute (YPI), which is teaming up with Hobsons to help students discover their interests and strengths, understand the connection between academics and career paths, and create postsecondary education plans.
When the Hobsons team visited Thomas Viaduct Middle School in Howard County, Maryland, we asked 11-14 year-olds what they are good at, what they are interested in, and where they might be headed one day, once they get their braces off and survive the rigor of high school.
