PARENTS AS CAREER COACHES (PACC):  Middle/Junior High
Why should I attend a PACC session?
While school staff and others play a role in a child’s career journey, studies have shown that parents have the most impact.  Other studies have shown that the ideal time to begin exploring careers is with children in junior high.  PACC will provide you with: 
• information that will help you understand and deal with the many twists and turns that can occur.
• course selection information.
• details on critical skills and personal qualities required to be both competitive and successful, in the work force. 
• resources, which will provide information on specific jobs, labour market demands, education/training requirements, salaries and much more.
• a parent guide designed to help you work with your children throughout their career journey.
• a student workbook, which provides your daughter or son with information and activities to:
· Identify interests and skills
· Research occupations
Who should attend?
Parents (grand-parents, foster parents, aunts, uncles etc.) of students in grades 6 to 9.
