Careers: The Next Generation


Careers: The Next Generation is a non-profit tasked with assisting students in the area of RAP, Internships, and ICT.  This non-profit receives Alberta Government funding to partner with government, educators, communities, industry, parents and students to introduce youth to meaningful employment and develop the skilled workers of the future.  All internships through Careers: The Next Generation are paid.

Upcoming virtual sessions are being offered below by Careers: TNG.  There are opportunities for all students in grades 9 through 12, as well as specific sessions for young women in the trades.

Internships let you “test drive” a career. Careers: The Next Generation works in partnership with schools and employers to offer internships all around Alberta, in all kinds of different fields, so you can find out what it’s really like to work in a job that interests you. On top of building confidence in your career path, our programs let you gain work experience, earn a wage, earn high school credits and make connections with future employers – all before high school’s even over.
