Help! I’m Graduating!

What’s post-secondary education all about? Is it about choosing a specific career? Or is it about developing the skills you need to become successful in any number of different jobs and careers?

The truth is that post-secondary can be about all of the above and more. And you definitely don’t need to have all of the answers right away. In fact, it’s ok to change your mind about what you want to get out of your post-secondary experience along the way.

The key is to give yourself as many options as possible in the future. Choose the post-secondary opportunities that fit your skills and interests. Open up more doors in your future. The more you know about the different opportunities out there, the more likely you are to find that right fit

The following resources provide an in-depth look at some of the big ideas you need to know about. Read them, share them and talk about them to help guide your decision making about post-secondary education.

Job Opportunity:  Code Ninjas is hiring

Code Ninjas is a franchise with over 300+ locations open in North America and 40+ opening before December 31st, 2021 (Kelowna is included here! 😊 )

In our dojo, we offer in-person coding for kids ages 5-14. They start with white belt drag and drop code and as they move to black belt they learn Javascript, Lua, and C#. Our Code Senseis help guide ninjas through the self-paced curriculum and are really the cheerleaders for the ninjas. We encourage kids to problem solve, collaborate with each other and critically think; Senseis are there to ensure this process is fun and engaging. In the summer we host summer camps, which is all about STEM and coding, and Senseis again are integral to leading the camps.

My website is https://www.codeninjas.com/kelowna-bc-ca but is not fully operational as we are not yet in pre-sales and do not yet have any programs to offer.

We can be found @codeninjaskelowna on Facebook and Instagram.
