NEXTnetwork is a unique career planning initiative created for young people in Prince Edward Island.
Our online community brings together students, job seekers, teachers, parents, and employers. Our mission is to provide young adults with the information they need to make informed decisions about their work and post-secondary education options after high school.
We provide tools and resources to help parents support their students’ pursuit of post-secondary education and career goals.
For teachers and guidance counselors, we share tools and resources to support and supplement their existing career awareness curriculum. Finally, we allow employers the opportunity to showcase their workplaces and network with the future workforce of Prince Edward Island.
The NEXTnetwork website features informative blog posts, original web video, an extensive directory of colleges and universities across Canada, and a number of valuable tools and resources. We also enjoy visiting local schools to help promote the community and to support teachers and guidance counselors raise awareness to the need for early career-planning among youth.
Members of the NEXTnetwork have their own profile areas where they can interact with other users and participate in contests to win great prizes.
NEXTnetwork is an initiative of SkillsPEI and is funded in whole or part by the Canada-PEI Labour Market Agreement.
