KPR encourages young women in Grades 7 to 12, and their parents and guardians, to participate in Dream Big, a virtual career discovery expo on December 1, from 6-8:30 p.m.
The free event will highlight careers available in the skilled trades, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), emergency response, entrepreneurship and more – all careers in which women traditionally have been under-represented.
For more information and to register for this event, please visit dreambigknc.eventbrite.ca .
KPR also will be running an information night in January for all KPR students about career pathways available through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program, Specialist High Skills Majors, and Dual Credit programs, which allow students to gain high school and post-secondary credits at the same time. Stay tuned for details.
