Students complete 20 and 30 level Math, English, Chemistry, Biology and/or Physics required for post-secondary degree or diploma programs in an intense six month time frame. The Emergency Services Transition project focuses on physical conditioning, entry level exam and interview preparation and other requirements for Policing or Firefighter Occupations.

Youth Career Camps

Career Camps aimed at youth in high school provide career exposure, and leadership development, in a camp setting during the summer months. The highly popular Environment Career camp provides Métis youth ages 15-18 with exposure to careers in the environmental field, such as: environmental auditor, fish and wildlife officer, forest technician, or park warden through work experience. Dependent on their current educational attainment, youth can also earn between 17-24 high school credits by completing Alberta Career and Technology Studies (CTS) courses in Wilderness 1130, Health Care Services 2020 (First Aid/CPR) and Career Readiness 1010. They can earn additional CTS credits while at the camp by completing standard and wilderness first aid, H2S alive, WHMIS/TDG, GPS and canoe certification. Youth also earn a summer wage while completing the environmental career camp.
