Student Profile Sheet for References
Do you need a reference letter? Scholarships often require references. Start the process by completing a student profile sheet to outline your accomplishments over the past three years. Providing the completed profile sheet to your referees will make writing you a strong reference letter easier.
Looking for volunteer opportunities in your community? Check out Volunteer Central, a database of volunteer postings by area. Volunteering looks great on a resume and is an important consideration for scholarships! Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community!
Junior Forest Ranger Program 2020
The Junior Forest Ranger program is a paid summer job that exposes high school students to a wide variety of careers in the natural resource sector. This includes everything under forestry, wildfire, environment and parks, conservation, stewardship and fish and wildlife.
Crew Members apply before April 1st and the applications will be available on line at the beginning of February (www.albertajfr.ca). Everyone who applies has the opportunity to have an interview, either in-person or over the phone. The program will begin the first week of July with training taking place in Hinton. The program lasts until the middle to end of August with Bull of the Woods. For more details, check here.
Students are encouraged to book a career appointment with Ms. Halter in Grade 12 to explore career options, to look at education or training requirements needed to obtain employment in a particular field, to learn about post-secondary programs and gain information on scholarships. Students can book an appointment using the paper schedule in the Learning Commons until the new online booking option is available. Please note appointments will become available to Grade 10 and 11 students in the second semester!
