World of Choices

Bring Students Together with Career Mentors

It's not often we get the chance to sit down with someone in the profession we dream of getting into.

How might your life change if you could?

World of Choices will bring students together with Career Mentors in their desired fields and give them the opportunity to talk with others in professions they’d never considered before.

Five sessions, small tables, an afternoon that will open a world of choices to Alberta's youth.

Students in high school have the opportunity to sit down with mentors from a variety of different career sectors to learn what those jobs entail.
