"ZOOM" Youth Career Conferences
Our Career Conferences are designed to inspire and educate both youth and educators about the opportunities available to them in the Region of Waterloo.
Through these events, grade 11-12 students have the opportunity to participate in interactive career exploration and skill development workshops related to a field of interest.
Since the inception of this program, 10,000 students and 1,000 volunteers have participated in this initiative. Last year, over 40 workshops were delivered to approximately 500 students in Waterloo Region.
