VSB Career Programs
If you’re considering a career path in the skilled trades, technology, fashion design, or health care, VSB Career Programs are the way to go! They offer training programs you can complete during grade 12 at either VCC, BCIT, the Piping Industry College, or a VSB school. Here are a few key points to consider. By considering these opportunities now in Grade 10, you will be able to prepare and plan better for your Gr. 11 and 12 years:
- You’ll earn both high school and post-secondary credit at the same time
- Your tuition is paid by the VSB for these programs
- You could start a paid apprenticeship while earning credits toward graduation
- Some programs are full-time at VCC or BCIT, while others are split between Point Grey and another VSB school
- All of these programs lead to graduation and a post-secondary credential
Now is the time to start thinking about this opportunity! These career options are the kind that have grown during the pandemic and offer economic stability and plenty of job opportunities.
These programs can only be funded during your grade 12 year. Application deadlines are in December and March of your grade 11 year. You are encouraged, however, to apply in grade 10. For more information, contact Mr. Cordoni and visit https://www.vsb.bc.ca/site/Career-Programs/programs/Pages/default.aspx.

Finding the career field that interests you is quite difficult. As students, we rarely get the chance to dive deep into what each job has to offer. The Youth Career Mentorship provides participants with the opportunity to speak with and ask questions to a workforce professional in a field of their choosing. This enables students to seek valuable career and school advice as well as gain a better understanding of the jobs that interest them.

Breathr provides opportunities for youth and young adults to try a variety of mindfulness practices, from guided meditations to simple practices that can be used anywhere.
It also teaches interesting facts about the brain science behind those practices. For example, did you know that regularly practicing mindfulness can improve your relationships and connection with others? Or that it has been shown to change parts of the brain that improve memory and reduce stress?
Our aim is to show youth that mindfulness can be fun, easy to try, and that it can have noticeable benefits for their overall health and well-being.
