Preparing Students for the World of Work (WOW!)

Greater St. Albert Catholic high schools provide many WOW opportunities for students to prepare them for success after graduation.  Gallup researchers, Rath and Harter (2010), confirmed from over 10,598 interviews that only 19% of the people “liked” what they did each day at work. To reverse this trend, they explained that youth had a chance to identify their strengths and to leverage them to determine what they might want to do while they were young (13-16 years old). The majority of those who loved what they did had time to explore work experience, to learn from a mentor who was already in a career and to explore a trade through RAP (Registered Apprenticeship Program).
