The SD61 Pathways & Partnerships team supports hands-on learning and life transition resources and programs for middle schools.
Research shows that children start to make assumptions about their suitability for a career as early as seven years old, so getting to students as young as possible is important.
The SD61 Career Explorer Workbook for middle school years allows students to identify strengths, interests and values to start thinking about the bigger questions around discovering their purpose and designing a balanced life.
Lessons include exercises that help them discover what matters to them, connect First Peoples’ teachings to their values and virtues, and allow them to reflect on what supports their mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.
