"Most definitely it would be really easy to find ideas for things you want to do on the internet. Basically, any club that you are a part of, you could probably find a trip to go on and learn so much about, not just that club, but about your future you may want to have."

"Just by the application process you might be able to maybe learn something about your job later on in life. How to apply, how to talk to people, how to plan things. Just how to be organized."

Advice from
  Tyson Schaffner
 
 

1.) BE SURE TO READ EVERYTHING THOROUGHLY AND DONT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. GET STARTED RIGHT AWAY!!!

 

2.) If you need any help you just have to ask!! Ask a parent, gaurdian, teacher, counselor, etc. Go to the Patched Overalls page on Facebook and post the question to the comminuty and see what others have to say.

 

3.) Search for youth programs, internships, or experiences with anything you are interested in. Be sure to check reviews and references for whatever programs you find. You want to make sure the place is legitimate and not a scam. That goes for safety as well. Your safety is the most important thing!!

 

4.) Ask yourself "Is my proposal worth $2500?"

 

5.) Really dig deep with the application process and proposal questions. Think about what all the words mean and what they mean to you.

 

6.) Think about the impact this experience could have on you in the short term and the long run. Try to appreciate what this experience means for you and your future and try to live in the moment!!

 

7.) This process is not meant to be easy. Life isnt always easy. You may have to make some sacrifices to complete this process. This is where you prove how bad you want it.
