The Career Education curriculum supports students in the process of becoming successful, educated citizens by providing them with opportunities to explore a variety of careers and options for their future. Career Education helps students to discover a bridge between classroom learning and workplace and post-secondary realities, and is intended to make their learning meaningful and relevant. Career Education K–12 is a redesigned provincial curriculum that focuses solely on the competencies and content required for career development. In the past, Career Education was part of the Health and Career Education (HACE) K–9, Planning 10, and Graduation Transitions programs. The review of all curricular areas has resulted in the health curriculum being combined with physical education to create a new, holistic Physical and Health Education curriculum.

Building the Bridge: Enriching the volunteer experience to build a better future for our communities (Research Findings)

How can we bridge the gap between what youth – young Canadians aged 15-24 years old – are looking for in volunteering today and how organizations are engaging youth volunteers? Conducted in the summer of 2010, a new pan-Canadian research study provides the most current national data about the changing culture of Canada’s voluntary sector, including information specific to the nation’s youth population. Unlike earlier surveys that emphasized overall participation rates, this new research captured: – What youth want in their volunteer experiences; – The issues youth have in finding satisfying volunteer roles; – and What organizations can do to enhance the volunteer experience for youth, which in turn can help them achieve their missions and ultimately build stronger communities.
