Five Benefits of the Foundations Program
Students are able to select one of five career groups to complete their internship in, working directly with a company to support their business, marketing and professional projects. Our Career Groups were specifically chosen to allow students to gain a broad understanding of various professional paths within their chosen career group to support post-secondary pathways to success.
All project teams will work over the four weeks of the program to complete set assigned projects that align with the weekly curriculum. All projects are introduced at the beginning of the week by their assigned Host Company, and given the opportunity for direct feedback from their supervisor. At the end of the program students will be able to articulate four business projects they completed throughout their internship and apply the experience to their resume, future job applications, and their university application.
Each week students will access an online curriculum that will introduce them to the concepts and fundamentals of their weekly projects and allow them to understand how their projects impact the greater business mission of their host company. The curriculum was dynamically designed to provide the foundations of career exploration and professional development while meeting the needs of the student.
