Catherine testimonial Youth in Transition

The information was interesting and  relevant because it helped us get an idea of how to plan for our future careers and how to more accurately and honestly identify our own personal strengths and weaknesses. 

RNS Grade 11 Student

It challenged me to think about myself in a way I wouldn’t have before. This was useful and relevant, as it helps me learn more about who I am and goals, I need heading into the future to fulfill my life.

RNS Grade 12 Student

I would recommend this course to young people so they can learn who they are instead of pretending to know.

I found it really clear and organized because everything I found related to me and finding your goals, gifts, values and passions and helped me realize my dream.

The program helps you think about your future and your plans and what you are going to do without being afraid. It helps you have an extremely clearer path for life.

RNS Grade 10 Student

The program made me realize things I needed to be reminded of and it made me realize new things about me and my capabilities.  It’s relevant because I was confused about my future and now I have a better vision.
