Happy June! This is a great month because it includes the last day of school, the first day of summer, Father’s Day, Flag Day, and my birthday. 🙂 Before I get started introducing the June 2019 issue of Homeschooling Teen magazine, I want to congratulate all the homeschool graduates! At this important milestone in your life, I wish you all the best and may this be just the beginning of a lifetime of success.
As you look to the future, when it comes to college and career, we’ve got some great articles for you this month – including three scholarship opportunities! If you need ideas for graduation gifts, we have a list of inspiring books to choose from. If you’re thinking of applying for a job, getting in shape, or taking a summer class, we have articles related to those too.
The featured college in this month’s issue is West Virginia University, where Hilde Lysiak – homeschooled investigative reporter and publisher of Orange Street News – addressed the Reed College of Media. If you’re thinking of going into journalism, you won’t want to miss her inspiring commencement speech!
In other news… you might be interested to know that the HVAC industry is a hidden gem in STEM, and a highly desirable skilled trade that you might want to consider. Learn what’s behind the paradigm shift in consumer shopping habits from “bricks to clicks.” By the way, did you know that Walmart will help you with standardized test prep, college tuition, and degree completion, as well as give you college credit for on-the-job training? Read all about it in this issue.
Additional articles include a review of Inkheart, a piece about America’s hunters, driving tips for teenagers, caring for wildlife, preventive healthcare, and an infographic on long distance relationships. Also, be sure to enter the “He Reads Truth” Bible giveaway!
P.S. We have a new Homeschooling Teen Facebook Group with 18 members so far. Feel free to join if you want to connect with other homeschooling teens. But we’re in need of moderators. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help moderate the group. Thank you, and have a great summer!
