The Career Education Council is a registered charitable organization (Est.1990) with the mission of providing youth with meaningful opportunities for experiential learning, career exploration and skill development which will help them to make informed decisions about education and career pathways. Our organization develops, coordinates and delivers workshops, career events and programs which provide youth with insights, information and experiences to support and inspire them as they make plans for the future.
We connect directly with youth to assist them in gaining an understanding of employment and careers trends that will influence their ability to find meaningful work and fulfilling careers in the future. Whenever possible our focus is on in-demand careers that reflect our local employment landscape.
We work closely with community partners, school board representatives, teachers and local employers to keep a pulse on ways that we can best serve youth and our community through our programs and events.
You can help us to accomplish our mission and to support youth in Guelph/Wellington/Dufferin by becoming a Friend of the CEC or connecting with us through your business or organization as a sponsor of one or more our initiatives.
