This program enhances employability skills and introduces participants to diverse career options.
To make sure that our youth are kept up-to-date on the opportunities that exist, the Career Promotion and Awareness program ensures that participants have the essential skills and knowledge to be a part of cutting-edge changes in the job market.
ASD will support Career Promotion and Awareness by funding such activities as:
As with the Science and Technology program, costs such as facility rentals, speakers fees, and travel and admission costs are eligible for funding under this program.
The job market is becoming more specialized with each passing day. Jobs that did not exist yesterday will be in high demand tomorrow. To make sure that our youth are not left behind, promotion of exciting new careers is necessary to help participants to intelligently plan their educational and professional paths.
If you are interested in bringing awareness of these opportunities to Eeyou Istchee, please apply today.
