The Eric Newell ‘Kidz in Careers’ Golf Classic was established in 2009 to pay tribute to the founder of CAREERS: The Next Generation, Eric Newell. As Past Chair and CEO of Syncrude Canada, Eric’s steadfast commitment and continual advocacy for youth in Alberta has been nothing short of inspirational. Eric continues to serve as the CAREERS Founding Chair and 10 years since the first tee off, we’re prouder than ever to honour the work he started – helping Alberta youth on their path to rewarding careers.


Introducing students to great career options in high school motivates them to stay in school, engage in learning, grow their skills, expands their opportunities, and ultimately creates communities with a large and diverse skilled workforce enhancing economic stability and prosperity. When youth succeed, we all succeed.

CAREERS is poised to adapt and innovate to ensure that youth today and tomorrow have a promising future. CAREERS connects learning to earning through career AWARENESS, EXPLORATION and EXPERIENCE opportunities, helping youth discover career passion in trades, technologies, health and occupations in high demand. But we can’t do it alone.

You can make a definite and immediate impact:

  • Sponsor – promote your company and connect to clients and customers
  • Play – network with key industry leaders and enjoy a fun day of golf
  • Volunteer – a team building event for your workplace or simply giving your time

Funds raised from the Eric Newell ‘Kidz in Careers’ Golf Classic go directly to support student programming. In 2018:

  • 47,309 students were reached at CAREER fairs and school presentations
  • 549 young people took part in exploration camps and
  • 1,520 students gained experience through paid internships with 816 employers
