Welcome to Next Stop: Job!

Next Stop: Job is a multi-lesson program designed to teach youth, ages 14 and up, the skills necessary to obtain a job.

Through videos and hands-on activities, youth learn essential job market skills, such as marketing, communication, writing skills, and financial literacy, to help them succeed in the workplace. Each lesson plan lists learner outcomes, success indicators, life skills, time needed, and a materials list, and aligns with Florida Common Core standards. This curriculum can be used in its entirety (for a total of six hours), or individual lessons can be used on their own. The lesson plans reference resources from educational institutes and curricula to be used in conjunction with Next Stop: Job. Some may be purchased and others can be found on the web. The program also includes pre and post surveys for youth to complete. Some are based on 4-H Common Measures, while others are entirely knowledge-based.
