“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Little kids often give similar answers to that question, before they learn about dozens of other jobs. Really, the options are endless. And by the time they get to pick one, there’ll be new jobs—some we can’t even imagine. It’s never too early for young people to explore the career paths that match their unique talents and interests.

TIME for Kids is building a new free digital product for young people ages 8 to 14 that invites them to discover an ever-expanding world of careers and explore the many paths to a future of meaningful work. The easy-to-navigate product will host videos, articles, and interactive quizzes, and is supported by standards-aligned materials for teachers and resources for parents. Please check out the beta website here.

For this Advisory Group opportunity, we are recruiting young people ages 8-14 as well as parents/caregivers and educators of young people kids in that age range.
