Pius’s Answer

As a high school newcomer, I'd suggest you explore youth programs that align with your future dreams.

Say, if you're interested in STEM, there are youth groups that organize free summer camps to introduce you to the world of STEM education. I'd recommend you seize the opportunity to engage with these groups, either as a learner or a volunteer. Building a connection with them could prove to be extremely advantageous for your future.

Andrew’s Answer

If you have a future career in mind, it would be prudent to find out the necessary training for that job. Then, you should tailor your high-school academic curriculum accordingly. Your high-school academic curriculum should be a good preparation for your higher-education pursuit if a college degree, and, perhaps, graduate degrees are required for your career goal.

For example, if you want to be a scientist/engineer, you should invest your time and energy on math and science courses in high school. You are then prepared for the rigor of a STEM curriculum in college.

On the other hand, keep an open mind to your future career pursuit. Your ideals and aspirations may change due to life circumstances. Nonetheless, a good and balanced high-school education should be a good preparation for any future challenges you are taking on.

Nicolas’s Answer

You need to start out by volunteering. You will be doing simple and brainless tasks, but as long as it is with a company in your field it should work in your favor. Research & find a company in the field and area you want to work in by typing it in search, and contact their volunteer coordinators via email. You should keep one of these positions for 2 years, or until the end of sophomore year, and then try for two more; one junior year and one senior year. This way you will have showed a college or employer that you have kept a job for two years (which is what they ask) and also showed that you are well rounded in your career choice. Don't do the same tasks at each volunteer experience, and indicate on the resume your duties and responsibilities. There are also paid volunteer opportunities.

Nicolas recommends the following next steps:

Search your field (google)
Send an email.. "Hi, my name is [insert]. I have learned about [insert] on the web. I am interested in volunteering and available..
Accept the offer
Don't ever be late
