What is the Career Connections program?:
The Foundation Schools’ Career Connections program helps our students successfully transition from The Foundation Schools to post-secondary education or the world of work through the provision of career assessments/curriculum materials, business attire, testing/ placement fees, transportation costs, training and job coaching programs, field trips, college fairs/ tours, vocational training and other necessary preparation tools. Not only does it provide tools and opportunities in a small and individualized environment, but our students also receive direct support from the program through internship and externship opportunities including TFS Strive to Succeed Workroom and coordination with community partners.These supervised work-based learning experiences help students to develop their social skills and work ethic while enabling them to successfully transition from school to meaningful employment.
