With help from community partners, we hosted our second annual Career Crawl in collaboration with DSBN Academy, bringing over 75 grade 10 & 11 students Downtown St.Catharines for a reverse Career Day on October 25. The day started at City Hall where students heard from CAO Shelley Chemnitz and City of St.Catharines HR Department., learning about the various employment opportunities within the city from accountant to zoning technician. Students also got to learn first hand about the tiers of government and the operational responsibilities of municipal government. Students then split into groups to explore their interests by career sector. The organizations that participated in this experiential learning opportunity included; FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, Fourgrounds Media, Niagara Artist Centre, Niagara Regional Police Services, Niagara EMS, Clickback, Smith Family Dentistry, McGarr Realty, Niagara College Employment Services, Hair By Safyaa, Ministry of Transportation, RBC, KPMG and Macdnoald Zubrenec and Ensslen.
