Workshop No. 2 – Saturday February 12th 2022

  • Job interview preparation & practice.
  • Mental health & work-life balance.

Why do we need career mentoring?

Research shows that mentored youth are 17% more likely to be gainfully employed later in life and make on average 13% more in those jobs when compared to non-mentored youth. Career mentoring provides our youth with new skills to add to their tool boxes, it helps them to dream big and reach their full potential!

If you’re a young person looking for you first part-time job or looking to develop your skills to enter the workforce full-time, there is space for you in Big Possibilities!
