CS50 is an on-campus and online introductory course on computer science taught at Harvard University and Yale University. In 2016, CS50 became available to high school students as an AP course. The course material is available online for free on EdX with a range of certificates available for a fee. If you are in HS school then you could even get college credits for it. If not, it's still a good place to start. Check it out at:
If you enjoy Computer Science, continue with it and see if a technical career is what you're passionate about. If it isn't, you can always pivot to a tech-adjacent role and even something completely different and perhaps apply your technical education to side projects or volunteer work.
I encourage you to utilize the library, LinkedIn, and tech company websites to research the various positions that exist within the tech industry. And remember, some companies are NOT tech industry companies, but they still hire technical professionals.
I hope this helps and I wish you great success whatever you decide to do!
My son started taking Java and Python courses in high school, he got a degree in Computer Engineering undergraduate from the State School and his starting salary started with six figures (he had to pass the employer's mandate quiz before he was granted the interview).
Take AP courses (Physics, Chemistry, Maths, etc.) if it is available in the high school beyond Computer Programming courses. This will develop your analytical skills to solve problems very quickly.
What is "young age" defined as? I'd be curious to learn what you consider "young".
Though, I would say, yes, teaching kids (even before the age of 5) computer science is a great thing. The reason being is that it's kind of like learning a second language, and it really helps to start as young as the child is able. Teaching kids can help in that when you come across a problem, solving problems via programming because engrained in you, and I believe that it can help someone become a programmer even later in life.
So yeah, regardless of how young you are, I recommend that you go take a class or two in computer programming and see if you like it. There are even board games that can teach you some of the fundamentals like Robot Turtles (http://www.robotturtles.com).
Leave you with some inspirational reading;
Best of luck for the career ahead!
