Which direction are you going after high school?

With college costs on the rise, more low-income students are questioning whether attending a university is the best direction to go after graduating high school. Does community college make more sense? Is a Job Corps program or the military a better fit? 

Michigan Radio's Jennifer White will host a one-hour special about life after high school on Thursday, Oct. 22. We'll explore which options are best for students trying to climb the economic ladder. To do this, we need your help. 

We'd like to talk with some recent or upcoming grads about the direction they're heading. What made you choose the path you're on?

We are especially hoping to talk to those who:

  • Are choosing the community college experience over a traditional four-year school
  • Have gone, or are going through a Job Corps or job-training program
  • Decided to join the military after high school 

Does that sound like you, or someone you know? If so, let us know hereor in the comment section below.
