Having young people experience their material future now

Gordon Allport's theory (#7. Propriate striving) says that young people start to think about their futures at about age 10-12. But, today there are so many distractions between them and their futures. Have they developed a context in which to process education in a way that will benefit them later? Do they have a reason to want to learn– in view of their other current options?


Sure, we can continue to feed them information, but like a dry sponge in a Zip-Lock bag, if they cannot/do-not absorb, are we really helping them?

What if they could experience their material futures now? When they see what it's really like to earn a living by handling money and resources, they may alter their attitudes toward the value of an education.
