What do you want to be when you grow up? When students are able to connect their learning to a goal, they find meaning in their education, create real-world connections, and stay engaged.

By supporting career and life skills programming you give students the chance to explore career paths, gain work experience, and even build credit towards university, college, and trades certifications, while still in school.

Career programs change student’s lives. Just look at how the pipe trades program turned Dean’s education around.

Career Programs

Career programs are just the beginning.

Beyond the workplace, there are essential life skills that we all need to succeed. Working with educators in the CBE, we aim to support innovative programs that give students valuable life skills beyond the classroom. We’ve worked with teachers and students to create opportunities to build financial planning skills, create positive conversations about mental health, and more.

Students at Lester B. Pearson High School combined art forms to encourage empathy and openness about mental health among students at the school.

With a balanced focus on career and life skills, you can give students the tools they need to become contributing global citizens.
