Career Chat Live offers live, online career exploration opportunities. Each session focuses on a new set of careers. During each session, youth will get to meet workforce professionals in that career field. The youth will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in small group conversations with the guest speakers. Career Chat Live is designed for middle-school aged youth, and youth do not need to be enrolled in 4-H to participate.

You can now request a Career Chat Live session! Simply complete the request form to let us know what you're looking for. While we cannot guarantee that we'll be able to fill all requests, but we will do our best to fit your needs.  

The Career Chat Live program is a partnership between Nebraska Extension 4-H Youth Development and EducationQuest Foundation.
