Vocational Exploration

Let us help you explore your vocation! Vocational discernment is a life-long educational process that often intersects with choosing a major and a career. Sometimes your vocation is fulfilled through your work, sometimes through your activities outside of work but almost always results in service with others. Vocational exploration involves thinking, acting and reflecting. Here are some opportunities and resources to help you begin the journey.
