Experience the possibilities
A new kind of careers education!

The Alberta Boreal Careers Project

*offered in conjunction with our Student Sustainability & Careers Summit (S3) 

With a growing number of career opportunities available to students it is important to provide them with the information they need to help them make career choices. For this we believe in the E’s – explore, experience and engage.
The ABC Project is an experiential learning event for junior and senior high school students designed to investigate science, technology and careers in Alberta’s Boreal Region. During the program students will discover a myriad of career options & paths, learn about post-secondary requirements, have day-in-life experiences, meet leaders in the field and assess future employment possibilities.
On the program, your team will take part in a variety of engaging interactive activities  and discussions that tell the stories of professionals working in natural resource and environment fields.
