working during school

We should develop a section that talks about working while in school. We could provide examples and reasons for doing it.

    I strongly agree and support this section, for my Area. Even for those that think they don't need the money, the experience gained in learning from work environment and the network created during those periods are invaluable.

    I strongly agree. This is particularly true in my area. Too many YSA do not work during their university studies and their parents pay for all the expenses. This becomes very expensive for many families.

    Page 49 of Education for a better job mentions it as an option but most often our members just assume it can't be done because others before them have said so. What we are doing is share examples of other YSA who work or worked while in college and how they were able to do it. This is also a good time to mention that lessons 7 to 12 will help them do just that.

    Perhaps we could discuss internships as a great way to gain experience while studying and creating relationships with potential employers.
