HONOURING THE WHOLE PERSON
We enhance student success in the Professional Project Administrator (PPA) Program by providing support for the whole person with what we call “wraparound services.” Student experience and success is improved through emotional, financial, technical, cultural, and logistical support. In previous program offerings, these supports were highly valued by students.
Our partnering Indigenous organizations have access to a living stipend we can help you apply for.
Guidance and teachings from an Indigenous Elder are woven into the program. The cultural activities are a highlight for many students.
Students have access to Indigenous counselling services for free.
Students are given a laptop computer, keyboard, and mouse to keep. The computer comes loaded with MS Office 365, with a one-year license.
Students get weekly sessions on a wide variety of career development topics. They also get one-on-one career coaching, a job club, and a job fair,
One-on-one life coaching sessions are available to all students to help set goals, balance life’s demands, and build strategies to overcome challenges.
