Junior Staff Mentorship Program

The Virtual Junior Staff Mentorship Program


C4 ishwar-v02We are currently accepting applications for our Junior staff mentorship virtual program which is set to launch in January 2021.


This is a chance for Career Trek graduates to return and be mentored on various areas with focus on skill building, creativity, self-awareness, and career development. Junior Staff Mentors will spend 14 weeks engaging in a professional development workshop while building their own knowledge base, self-confidence, and leadership abilities.


This year we are including a bring a friend feature, as we want to ensure that as many young Manitobans have the same opportunity. If you have a family member or friend in Grade 9 – 12 who you think would benefit from this program, we invite them to apply.


You will have the opportunity to:
  • Increase confidence and self-awareness
  • Improve communication skills
  • Improve personal responsibility and accountability
  • Prepare to successfully move ahead with post-secondary education
  • Develop a personal career path
  • Learn about workplace essential skills and develop skills to help prepare for the workforce


Program at a Glance:
  • A 14-week online after-school program
  • Participants will be expected to attend live video sessions scheduled once a week on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • The enrollment fee for the program is $25.
  • Deadline for applications is Friday, January 8!

What Junior Staff have to say


“Career trek is a fantastic education device that everyone should get to use, it pushes kids to try things they never would have before and lets them do so in a stress free environment. Without Career Trek I probably wouldn’t have found what I want to be when I grow up, and I thank Career Trek wholeheartedly for that.”



“Career Trek has given me the opportunity to make connections and build a stronger understanding of what I want for my future. It has also taught me to go beyond my boundaries, and aim higher every time I show up for programming. The best thing I’ve gotten out of the program was the friendships I’ve built within it.”
