MyFuture.com: A Good Resource for Young Adults

Ashley Thorne

I recently discovered MyFuture.com, a website for high school students to help them decide what to do as they begin adulthood. It has three branches: career, college, and military, and it has clear information and step-by-step guides for each. I appreciate its inclusion of military and career as viable options next to college - which makes sense given that MyFuture.com was developed by the Department of Defense.  Most of the time, the only option recommended to high school students is college. The easy-to-use website is something I'd recommend to all my high school friends and their parents. I'm glad to know about this good resource.
