Description

***REGISTRATION CLOSES AUGUST 24TH @ 11:59 PM***
Please ensure registrant's name is of the youth attending the workshop so we can match the application to seating arragement correctly.

Because achieving success in your career does not just happen! It starts now.

Ever wanted to pick the brain of an engineer, journalist, doctor, artist, or entrepreneur? Well now is your chance! Get the chance to talk to professionals and hear their stories in a small group setting.

Who are we?

The MAX Youth Fellowship (MYF) program is an initiative of MAX (Muslim Awards for Excellence) in partnership with Islamic Relief Canada. It is aimed at providing Muslim high school students overcoming barriers opportunities to develop various skills, form strong networks and gain meaningful mentorship.

What is a Human Library?

The Career Exploration Library workshop is based on the concept of The Human Library and is an event catered to high school students looking to explore their career options! Instead of reading a book about a job/profession, you will hear the stories directly from the professionals. We like to call them Human Books.

During the event students will get a chance to meet a variety of professionals, gain insight into the many career possibilities, and strengthen their networking skills. Each student will get a chance to sit and listen about 3 career interests of their choosing as selected during registration.
