Students will explore the realities and opportunities of the modern workplace while refining their employability skills.

Students may also have the opportunity to explore apprenticeship trades through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program.

This program offers students six weekly pre-placement sessions, four integration classes, health and safety training, a job placement with a qualified company, the ability to earn two high school credits and more.

Students can apply for this program by speaking to a guidance counsellor at their school.
