Career Crates is a program that brings the Career Exploration Centre beyond the walls of SAIT's main campus and into the Jr. High School classroom. 

What we do

At the Career Exploration Centre, we supply everything needed for a group — 12-16 students — to spend one-and-a-half hours with facilitators from SAIT. This highly interactive session has students engaging with 10 career activities through applied learning and is designed to assist Jr. High students with career awareness, gain tools to continue their career exploration and have the confidence to move forward with career plans.

The activities

In these interactive sessions, students will learn transferable skills, understand how their personal interests play an important role in exploring careers all while becoming more aware of the skills they excel at. 

What you'll need

The ideal space for a group exploration is a common area within your school:

  • 10 tables — not desks — for the activities
  • a screen to project the presentation
  • two chairs for each table
  • space for a group discussion
