Northern Lakes College hosted students participating in the Aboriginal Careers Explorers Academy at the Slave Lake Main Campus this past July 10, 2017 to August 11, 2017. Youth from the Lesser Slave Lake region had the opportunity to live in student residence, experience work life and gain an understanding and appreciation for the responsibilities and duties of specific occupations.
The five-week program was dedicated to raise youth awareness of career options and help students gain work experiences through internships. The first week prepared the high school students for the world of work through courses instructed at Northern Lakes College. The remaining four weeks’ students stepped into their internships with local employers.
