Each ALI will work as a team leader to facilitate career exposure sessions for one of the following career tracks: 1) Building Trades; 2) Law/Business/Elected Officials; 3) Medical; 4) IT/Game Design/ Engineering; and, 5) Art/Creative Writing/Journalism/Teaching. The ALI will complete activities to allow youths the opportunity to explore career opportunities and to determine if they have an interest in a specific career.

The ALI will also need to schedule at least one field trip per week to an organization that represents a career within their track to expose youths to an “actual” work environment. The ALI will focus their research on careers that are projected to have the most growth over the next 5-7 years.
