My (Future) Life is a new video project produced by WOUB Public Media and focuses on career exploration for middle and high school students.

My (Future) Life career video project was funded by the eTech Ohio Commission. This website consists of six career modules for students in middle school and high school, and one teacher self-study video support module with links to career investigation resources and assessment strategies.

Each My (Future) Life career video examines a career in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field and includes an interview with a professional in the career field and a discussion on the educational pathways students would need to accomplish to gain employment in that career field. After viewing the My (Future) Life career videos students will have a better concept of what they need to do while in high school to prepare for a STEM career.

The teacher video provides educators with information about how students select colleges that will support their career goals and what financial resources may be available to them.

Accompanying the teacher video are also web links on key issues in career exploration, and suggestions on how educators might to go about viewing the My (Future) Life career videos with their students.

The teacher resources video provides educators with the background needed to guide students in selecting and applying for college admission.
