Peaceful Careers: Alternatives to the Military
One of the best things youth can do is to research concrete career, life and education alternatives to what the military offers. People enlist for a variety of reasons such as: money for college, job training/skills, direction in life, discipline, to be part of a team, travel, to serve their country, to get out of trouble with the law, physical training, even citizenship. It is important to keep in mind that there are other options.
Search below by category and seek out career and learning opportunities that are available in your area, nationally, or in the entire world that can expand your horizons and launch your future in unexpected ways. And think about being an intern to gain the experience and develop the networking opportunities that can lead to a permanent career.
