Bert Bowes Grade 7 Students Exposed to Career Pathway Programs at FSJ Campus of Northern Lights College

By , April 26, 2017

Bert Bowes students were treated this month to experiential learning opportunities outside of their regular school routines. They met and heard from a variety of college personnel, from the greeting, smiling faces of student services, to current dual credit students in a number of different programs, to high-ranking college administrators, and many more in between.

Arguably, this is exactly what kids need- learning experiences outside of the four walls of the classroom, interacting with people who actually do the tasks they may be interested in pursuing, in their daily work environments.

Thanks are in order for the recruiting team at Northern Lights College for arranging all the activities for the kids, and organizing pizza lunches. Thank you to all those who spent time with our kids; enlightening young people on future career options is important work. Finally, thanks to Ms. Singer and Ms. Bennett, Bert Bowes teachers, for being fantastic sports about the tour idea.

If you are a teacher and would like a tour for your class, please contact Bonnie Bridges at bbridges@prn.bc.ca. If you are a high school student, Northern Lights has a program called Student for a Day, in which you live a day in the life of a college student, giving you an idea of what classes and life at the campus would be like. Please contact an NLC recruiter here for more information.

NLC is proud of its commitment to dual credit students; we are too!
