What is the Test Drive Your Future Experience?

The Test Drive Your Future Experience is an interactive online course that teaches high school students how to choose a rock-solid, “test-driven” career path. We’re helping both parents and students to save unnecessary time, effort and money!

Why is it needed?

 

What does the course include?

  • 30 lessons based on the step-by-step Test Drive Your Future career choice process (see course curriculum).
  • Interactive personalized Career Roadmap, complete with a Driver Profile, Career Lot, and Career Scorecard.
  • Parent/Mentor activities to increase student engagement.
  • Inspirational articles, videos, interviews, and online tests for further engagement.
  • The chance to win a scholarship in every participating region.

Who We Are

Test Drive Your Future is an online resource founded by entrepreneurs, Beth and Jim Hood. Together they own two small businesses on the Big Island of Hawaii, Websites with Aloha and Mobile Computer Doctor, and are founding members of the Waimea Professionals BNI chapter. They are authors of three books on career choice which were the inspiration for the Test Drive Your Future Experience online course.

Note from Beth & Jim:
As small business owners, we have seen the power of entrepreneurs in transforming our communities when we work together toward a common goal. Our passion is to build a community of creative, inspired, financially savvy young adults who embody the spirit of entrepreneurship. The aim of Test Drive Your Future is to do just that!

Together we can help the next generation make successful choices and keep our communities strong. Mahalo for your help!

Aloha,
Beth & Jim Hood
