About Our Service

We provide support to high school students who are currently in grade 11 or higher and are planning to attend college or university.

Headed to college or university? Post-secondary education & career virtual workshop series. Register and/or watch recorded sessions.

Designed for youth:

  • In high-school (grades 10, 11, 12 or 12+) and working towards your OSSD
  • Living with a disability and/or an autism spectrum disorder

Parents/guardians are welcome to participate.

Most workshops are interactive. They include a mix of information (presentation style), discussion, activities and an opportunity to ask questions. We engage Youth Mentors to share their lived experiences.

See our flyer for workshop topics and to register. The sessions will run again live in 2022/23.
