Victor is 16 and he’s in 10th grade. At lunchtime, he often discusses with his friends the choices they will have to make regarding the continuation of their studies. He has no idea about what he wants to do later and sometimes it angers him.
When Montréal Relève’s team came to present a career exploration program at his school, Victor decided to enroll. He hopes that this experience will help him in making choices. Among his interests: health, law and marketing.
The school year comes to an end. Montréal Relève’s team has given preparation workshops during which Victor got to know himself a little more personally and professionally. He adds the social and community services sector to his interests as he enjoys helping his sister and friends.
During the summer, Victor is offered an internship in an organization that distributes meals to the underprivileged. For a week, he lives the daily life of the team in the field, observes, analyzes and meets marketing people who make him discover the mission and vision of the organization.
Victor finishes his internship transformed by this concrete experience. He now knows that he wants to do a job that will help help people.
When he started the new school year, he made an appointment with the school guidance counselor; he had lots of questions!
