In 1998 an unprecedented partnership among eight school jurisdictions, government, business, and other youth-serving agencies was formed in order to improve the school-to-work transitions for Southwestern Alberta youth. These stakeholders saw the need to address community concerns over the level of career education available to students. In response, a non-profit organization called Chinook Regional Foundation for Career Transitions was born. Since then, Career Transitions has been working hard to make sure that every student in Southwestern Alberta is given the opportunity to explore their career options.
At the core of all Career Transitions initiatives is the coordination and implementation of career development activities and programming for over 10,000 Southwestern Alberta high school youth. Working together with parents, teachers, and the community, we make connections in an effort to establish meaningful career pathways for youth and to build talent pipelines for business and industry.
