Or what are you already.
I'm going to school to be a child and youth care worker. Its like a social worker/ counsellor.
There are so many different things I can do with it. I could work in group homes, be a child protection officer, work in a school, work for non profits, work in drop in centres and much much more.
Right now I want to be a parenting consultant with it. However I'm not to sure how to find a job in that so if that doesn't work I want to work in schools :)
How bout you ?

I'm going to school right now to be an RN. I would love to go to school to become a nail tech but RN pays more and has better job security lol.
