The Turning Points program helps youth successfully explore post-secondary programs and career options.


Since 2018, SAIT's Turning Points program has helped more than 100 high school youth see themselves as successful learners, gaining a better understanding of their career options and the post-secondary programs offering training for those careers, and building confidence in their own capabilities. 

“Turning Points supports vulnerable youth in making well-informed and intentional decisions about their futures," says Rozlynn Wick, SAIT’s Project Manager for Strategic Youth Initiatives.

"What I liked most about Turning Points was I had the chance to experience and try hands-on. It really helped me understand the importance of going to school and doing my work. It also helped me figure out what I wanted to do after high school."
