January 2014 Grant Awarded to “Career Exploration Club”

2 Mar

Our January grant came from an Awesome pool of projects that put us in a challenging spot (exactly where we like to be).  Some of the projects that made to the short list included:

All of you, please resubmit as you wish and as your projects evolve!  We think they are great.

But back to our winner!  We asked the project creator, Russel Chichester to tell us a bit more about his project to help provide kids with better tools to navigate their career and this is what he had to say…

What’s your project all about: It’s about giving young people a head start in life by exposing them to the best advice possible though a career exploration workshop hosted by the Career Exploration Club. For most high school students, deciding on a future career path and on a University/ College program can be an intimidating and nerve-wracking experience. Most students get to Grade 12 still unsure what career path is right for them. There are many career options out there, but no criteria/method to help them determine why one career path is better suited for them than another. With the Awesome Foundation money we will be able to put on a full eight week workshop for our graduating class through the Career Exploration Club.

What will this mean for your students: These students are in the process of making life changing career decisions and for the majority of them, as first generation Canadians, don’t have or understand the resources available to them to make these decisions. This grant will really help them out.

If anyone else wants to find out more or help out, how can they get in touch: You can always visit our website http://schoolweb.tdsb.on.ca/emeryci/Home.aspx, our contact information is there as well.
