Student Employment Program

Helping you find opportunities to gain valuable working experience, and maximize your skill set.

After-School Jobs

These are part-time jobs for after-school. This is a great way for students to gain real-world experience in the workforce. It will also allow students to learn and apply professional behavior such as showing up to work on time and 'clocking in' to demonstrate accountability and responsibility on the job. 

Co-op Jobs

A co-op, short for cooperative education, is a unique in-school program where you can gain practical experience in a field of interest that you can use to improve skills and work toward your future career. Co-ops can take place in many fields, from science, communication, design, to business.


Apprenticeship and internships are an industry-driven, high-quality career pathways where employers can develop and prepare you for the workforce. Internships and Apprenticeships are a great opportunity for career exploration and development. You can choose which path fits your future.

Summer Jobs

Summer Jobs are during the months of May, June and July, traditionally done during summer vacation. Students are able to work in a field that is related to their intended graduate career path, gaining experience and knowledge in their potential field while learning the value of money.

What is I.G.N.I.T.E.?


When you I.G.N.I.T.E. something generally it means to activate, kick-start, or to begin a transformation.

We believe that I.G.N.I.T.E is a set of character qualities that students can have in the workplace that make individuals good at their job. These same character traits can be applied in life as students progress into adulthood.
