What happened - from the students and parents point of view

"As a parent, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all those involved in this program. My daughter was fortunate to attend the 4 day program. She explained to me that it was one of the happiest times she has had through her education. She was able to meet with many other students from around BC who share the same goal as herself. She also came home with a greater sense of self worth and a higher self esteem. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful opportunity! "

Testimonials

Made a whole bunch of new friends

   

I enjoyed the fact that we were split into groups of people other than our friends. I was scared about it at first because I thought I was shy, but I got close with many people because of this.

 

Inspired me to continue where I was going

   

  •  Honoured to be here. Never met so many people with the same interests.
  • Made tons of friends which I did not expect. 
  • Liked that we talked to so many professionals.
  • Huge thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Above and beyond, an experience. Thank you.

  •  150% more than I expected. Wish it was longer because I loved it so much.
  • Enjoyed every minute and pumped to get on with my new focus once I graduate. 
  • If anything, I am now more confused, but that’s a good thing. Like Ron said, there are many different flavors of potato chips.

I now know where I am going

  

  • I wanted to come and learn, and I did, thank you.  
  • I have a better idea of what to do after high school. 
  • I was afraid that we would be thrown into a nurse shift or something, but it was way different, and it taught me way more than I imagined.



More than a classroom tour

I was able to learn a lot of things that I wasn’t aware of before. This program allowed me to see what healthcare professions did on a day to day basis and ask them questions about their career. I think this made it easier to find which careers I am interested in and people we can relate to. 

 

A real eye opener

 It was very enlightening and intriguing to see such a wide variety of career choices and to meet fellow students with the same passion and goals to make a difference in others lives. It has opened my eyes and I am seriously considering some of the options you shared with us. I look forward to working and serving with in the Prince George community in the near future.

 

I would like to know more about the program
