So you have waited and held off thinking about what is happening for you in grade 12 or beyond Grade 12.  You have avoided your school counsellor and hoped that it will all just go away… well it doesn’t have to be hard & you don’t have to do this alone.

The Vancouver School Board has you covered working with industry partners, Post-Secondary Schools and Institutions, Colleges and Trade Schools, as well as School Counselors to help you on your next steps.

The District Career Information Advisors are also on hand to support you.

Vietnamese Youth and Professionals Mentorship Program

Chương trình Mentorship Thanh niên và Chuyên gia Việt

The Vietnamese Youth and Professionals Mentorship Program (“VYPMP”) was founded in 2012 with the vision to allow Vietnamese Canadian youth to shadow and learn from already successful Vietnamese Canadian industry professionals.

VYPMP’s purpose is to shed light on all of the success that has happened thus far to other Vietnamese Canadian adults who have chosen to complete their education and build a worthwhile career. This program is to emphasize the value of education and to encourage youth to avidly continue in order to achieve their future goals. The mentor-mentee partnerships are created between Vietnamese Canadian youth (ages 15-18) and successful Vietnamese Canadian industry professionals with 5 to 10 years of experience. The intent is to foster a Big Brother/Big Sister-like relationship where mentors can guide, share experiences and stories, and answer career related as well as “growing up Vietnamese” specific questions that sometimes…only another Vietnamese Canadian can answer. 

If you are interested in participating please visit www.vcsavancouver.com/mentorship/application to fill out the application and send your resume to kim.nguyenyp@gmail.com.
