About Us

About Careers

CAREERS is a unique, industry-led public/private not-for-profit foundation established in 1997. It brings together industry, schools, government, and communities to guide youth into successful career paths.

Together with our school partners we are motivating students by making the workplace an extension of the classroom, preparing them for a future where they are in-demand!

Our Vision

Strong vibrant communities where youth develop successful careers.

Our Mission

Enable youth on their path to a rewarding career.


CAREERS has come a long way in the last 25 years, but nothing beats the passion and drive that the founding members had back in 1997.  Watch how CAREERS came to be.

Andy Neigel

“The opportunities CAREERS provides gives Alberta youth a head start, makes school relevant, helps them make informed decisions and leads them into a career that is in-demand. CAREERS also helps employers build their workforce from the ground up, keep youth in their communities, and prepare Alberta for future demands.”

– President of CAREERS
