VSB Presents: Parents as Career Coaches

Would you like to more effectively support your teenager with career decision-making? Attend this two session, 4 hour FREE interactive workshop designed to help parents of grade 9 – 12 students become more effective career development allies for their children. You’ll learn coaching strategies and be given some tools that will then become “homework” to practice on your teen. You’ll learn research skills that will help you coach youth along their career decision-making journey.

The skills you take away will make you more confident about providing support and guidance to your teen. The group setting provides support and an opportunity to network with other parents who, like you, are eager to learn ways to guide their children to make good decisions.

 Workshops will be held at Eric Hamber Secondary (5025 Willow St. at 33rd Ave.) over two evenings:
Wednesday, November 19th and 26th 6:30pm – 8:30pm

 Parents interested in the workshop can register for the Parents as Career Coaches workshop, by emailing Barbara Caparas, Coordinator at bcaparas@vsb.bc.ca.

Please bring your own water bottle or coffee, as none will be available.

Also, as an added bonus, there will be a very special art display and silent auction taking place that will feature art created by our Britannia art students. We hope to see friends and families there for a great night of music-making and art viewing. Entrance to the concert is by voluntary donation.

Street to Peak

Mount Kilimanjaro Field Trip!!

Britannia Secondary and the Streetfront Alternative program are planning an epic event that is show-casing public education: We intend to hike 18 of our most resilient students to the top of Kilimanjaro Mountain! Of course our goal is bigger than reaching Uhuru Peak on Kilimanjaro- it is ultimately about changing the way inner-city youth see themselves and see our community; it is about dreaming big and believing in a broader community of care, whatever our life circumstances. And it’s also all about the amazing opportunities that are available in our Public Education system and the incredible people that make it happen.  Check our website Street2Peak.com and perhaps make a donation.
