Research has identified that a major motivational barrier to post-secondary education (PSE) is that youth have trouble connecting their interests and skills with passions, career possibilities and educational pathways. In this short 100-minute program youth engage with quick hands-on activities that represent different interests, causes and careers and then hear from Brock students from diverse backgrounds who speak about their career path, causes and educational choices. This program will target youth in grades 7-8. We are attentive to transportation barriers by providing both in-school and at Brock options.
Through the generous funding of the Niagara Prosperity Initiative the Your Future program will be offered in a number of Niagara Falls schools in 2012-2013.
