Cambrian College is offering parents of students in grades 10 to 12 the chance to learn how to better guide their child through the process of choosing a career and an educational path.

Parents as Career Coaches sessions will take place over two nights. The first session, set for April 2, is strictly for parents. The second session, on April 10, is intended for parents and children to engage in career coaching activities.

Both sessions last from 5-9 p.m., and will be held in the college's Fontaine Bleue Dining Room (room 1271).

“Parents are the single greatest influence on their child’s education and career decisions,” Stacey Vehkala, student success event co-ordinator, said, in a press release.

“The two-evening session will help parents understand the critical role they play in assisting their child to recognize his or her interests and unique talents. The sessions also explore what employers consider to be critical skills, qualities, and attitudes required in the labour market of today and tomorrow.”

The deadline to register for the event is March 28. Dinner and free parking will be provided for those who attend.

For more information and to register, contact Vehkala by email at stacey.vehkala@cambriancollege.ca,or by phone at 705-566-8101, ext. 7746.
