Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program
Posted on 04/26/2021
Is your child interested in learning about apprenticeships and the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program??

In partnership with Loyalist, St. Lawrence colleges, and Algonquin College, the OCDSB is offering a series of 3 apprenticeship planning webinars - one in April, May, and June. 

These webinars are designed to overview almost everything a high school student needs to know about the apprenticeship pathway. Each session will be led by Candace Carson, a School-to-Work transition specialist, who supports youth in navigating the period between high school and employment. As a result of her experience as an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Coordinator and Pathways Consultant for one of Ontario's largest school boards, Candace is able to provide youth considering apprenticeship a clear and individualized learner pathway to employment.

There will be handouts to support the learning from each session. You are welcome to attend one, two, or all 3 sessions!

Dates are listed below. Each session will run from 6:00pm-7:15pm. You can sign up for the webinars at this link: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/rpt-9-apprenticeship-planning-webinars-tickets-149142478167
