Event description
Students Offering Support, peer-mentored, workshops designed to help high school students face the challenges of life after high school.

About this Event

Start Right provides live workshops, online resources, and personal mentorship delivered by current Post-Secondary student volunteers to help High Schoolers thrive through transitions.

Life after high school offers an exciting new chapter. But, this period of change can also present significant challenges for even the most talented and well-supported of students. Our program aims to helps high school students develop the skills, self-confidence, knowledge, and support networks to ‘start right’ as they begin the next stage of their lives.

Here is why it is needed:

4/5 current post-secondary students felt they hadn’t developed the health and stress management skills they needed for post-secondary

65% of students reported experiencing overwhelming anxiety in the previous year (up from 58% in 2013)

1/6 university students drop out in their first year

67% of Canadian students (university) graduate with debt, at an average amount of $25,000, which takes on average 10+ years to pay off

Over 50% of today's jobs will be affected by automation in the next 10 years

These changes can be scary and new for most high school students. Our workshops aim to reduce some of that anxiety before students go into life after high school.
