Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation (2005-2009)
F2D was an innovative partnership between the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation and the governments of New Brunswick and Manitoba. It was a six-year pilot project aimed at understanding whether better information, career development interventions and/or financial incentives can encourage students who would not normally pursue post-secondary education to successfully attend.
CCDF developed both the Grade 11 and 12 interventions. Lasting Gifts (Grade 11) is a series of workshops for joint audiences of parents/adults and teens. Future in Focus (Grade 12) is a series of workshops for students focused on building career resilience. Future in Focus also includes two sessions for parents/significant adults to help them understand the vital role they play and engage them in supporting their teens’ career development.
