On Our Minds Podcast: How to Choose a Path After High School

On Our Minds — a podcast made by teens, for teens, all about teens — and mental health

A recent study found that only about half of high school graduates say they definitely plan on going to college. In this episode of On Our Minds, Ashley and Tyler hear from several teens on their post-high school plans — whether it’s college, trade school, a gap year, or going right into the work force.

Student producers include Zion from the Frederick V. Pankow Center in Clinton Township, Michigan; Roury, Elena, and Malena from Westview High School in San Diego, California; and Anumta from Steven F. Austin High School in Sugar Land, Texas. This episode was produced by Youth Media Producer Becky Wandel, with help from Briget Ganske, and edited by Mohammad Pasha.
