CONNECTED: Young woman exploring careers

CONNECTED: Young Women Exploring Careers is a dinner event that links females from grades 10 through 12 with female mentors from a vast spectrum of career backgrounds. We believe that young women need access to adult role models who are willing to share their stories and career pathways. Ultimately, promoting a culture of support and empowerment among young women as they navigate their preferred future. We offer the event at no cost to both our mentors and female students. CONNECTED welcomes students pursuing all post-secondary pathways: work, university, college or apprenticeship and those who are still deciding.
