November 18, 2021 – Winnipeg, Brandon, & The Pas Manitoba – Career Trek will celebrate 25 years of career education programming on November 24th. The celebration will include a Drum Song by the Skownan First Nation Youth Drum Group and the Maples Collegiate Bhangra Dancers. Over the last 25 years, Career Trek has helped thousands of young people living on Lands in Treaty 1, Treaty 2, Treaty 5 and the Homeland of the Metis Nation explore careers, develop news skills and make informed decisions about their future!
Career Trek is able to offer high impact career focused programming because of the generous support it receives from donors, partners and funders. Programming has proven to have long lasting impacts on the lives of participants, and because of the generosity of others we can connect with over 800 participants annually.
In August 2021, Career Trek lost an advocate, champion and friend in Gord Hannon. Gord was committed to youth, education, and community never hesitating to step in and lend a hand or offer some sound advice and guidance. To honour his memory Career Trek is pleased to announce the Gord Hannon Memorial Scholarship that will start accepting applications in the New Year.
Quote from Rhonda, CEO Career Trek
“In all its 25 years Career Trek has always understood the importance of connecting with youth who face barriers to education and employment with experiences that provide them the tools and resources to become their own education and career champions! We couldn’t do this work without the generous support, guidance and commitment from individuals, organizations, communities, schools, and funders. Together, we can inspire life-long learning today, for a just and equitable tomorrow.”
