|Welcome to Direction 4 Life Work
High school and college students need guidance to identify
potential occupations and majors. These choices are likely to
have a greater impact on their lives than almost any other
decision they will make over the next several years.
When making such decisions they should have access to...
~ Relevant occupational information
~ The best possible data about themselves
~ Professional insight and advice to help direct their next steps
Career counseling for students can begin as early as eighth or
ninth grade. Getting started early has the advantage of
establishing some foundational thinking in your student
concerning who they are, their education and the world of work.
It will also help them approach the choices they will be making
during high school with greater focus and purpose.
For juniors and seniors, career counseling provides valuable
direction for their college and career exploration. The feedback
and affirmation they receive will instill greater confidence in both
you and them as they move toward their future.
Direction 4 Life Work has four levels of service for students to
provide both you and them with the guidance needed to be
intentional and successful in planning for their future. We are
here to help students find their way in the constantly evolving
world of today and tomorrow’s work.

The Way You Think About Colleges
"These schools share two essential
elements: a familial sense of
communal enterprise that gets
students heavily involved in
cooperative rather than competitive
learning, and a faculty of scholars
devoted to helping young people
develop their powers, mentors who
often become their valued friends."
