BRAIDED JOURNEYS GRADUATION
What an amazing virtual ceremony for the Braided Journeys class of 2020! CAREERS has had the pleasure of working with many of these graduates to find their career passion. We are so proud of their accomplishments and can't wait to see what lies ahead. Check out the highlights!
DRIVE YOUR DONATION FURTHER
We are grateful to our generous partners who chose to convert their 2020 tournament sponsorship into a donation to CAREERS. THANK YOU for your commitment to Alberta youth!
 
As our primary fundraiser for the year, the ‘Kidz in Careers’ Golf Classic typically raises $100,000 of critical funds to support the work that our team does across the province, keeping youth engaged in their education and readying them for future career success.
 
Although our tournament might be cancelled, there is another way you can use the game to support CAREERS. By donating through a program called Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink before August 30th, YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED BY UP TO 50%!
 
This program was created under the Calgary Shaw Charity Golf Classic to benefit a number of charities across Alberta, including CAREERS. Although the Shaw Charity Golf Classic has also been cancelled due to health precautions, Shaw Communications has committed $1 million to match Bird for Kids donations.
 
With the loss of our biggest fundraiser of the year, your support will go a long way towards helping us provide career awareness, exploration, and experience for Alberta youth.
