Opening Doors - Helping Our Children Discover Successful Careers
This toolkit has been created to assist you in helping your child discover successful careers in Manitoba. We have included an abundance of information and would like to thank Volunteer Manitoba for providing a great deal of the information throughout this toolkit.
Although Manitoba schools are providing career-planning activities, research shows that students are more successful if parents and schools work together. It truly does "take a village to raise a child".
The toolkit content has been organized into sections - each section contains information and website linkages to direct to further references if required.
Career Exploration: Programs and websites that provided your child with career awareness opportunities and free aptitude and interest assessments.
Education & Training: An extensive collection of educational institutions and training programs.
Employment Services: A comprehensive compilation of local service providers that can prepare your child with work-search tools such as resume development and interview skills.
Financial Aid & Scholarships: An overview of where to look and how to apply for student financial aid and scholarships.
Industry Career Information: A sampling of some of Manitoba's emerging industries and the exciting career opportunities that exist within them.
Parent Resources: An expansive list of resources available to Manitoba families and specifically teens.
Worker Rights: A briefing of worker safety tips, labour laws and human rights that every parent should know about before sending their child out into the world of work.
