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.

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