Important Update: Men as Career Coaches 2021
Where is MACC?
We had initially scheduled Men as Career Coaches for April 25, 2021. Unfortunately, due to changing circumstances around COVID-19, including the provincial stay-at-home order and the transition to virtual learning, we decided to postpone Men as Career Coaches.
During our rescheduling and planning efforts, it became clear that young people need connection and support more than ever. The students and youth we’ve heard from have experienced disruptions in their education, their extracurriculars, their work, and their ability to plan for the future.
We decided to use this opportunity to come together as a community to help. That’s why we’re turning this year’s Men as Career Coaches into Community Career Coaches – a community mentorship event open to everyone who is looking to connect with others for mentorship and inspiration.
This event will speak to the anxiety young people have about the future in this particularly complex time. We’ll have spotlight speakers from a variety of pathways, a fireside chat on the future of work, and, of course, breakout rooms for young people to connect with adult mentors from the community.
We hope you’ll join us at this event and contribute to an optimistic and inspiring conversation with young people in the community.

Fantastic event! Table discussion is outstanding as are the speakers.
Now I have a clearer idea of my career path and what I really want to do in the future.
I enjoyed the table discussions (very engaging/subjects I was interested in) and also enjoyed the spotlight speakers who came with a unique, moving story and had helpful tips and advice based on their experience. Thank you for hosting!
I felt this event was a life changer and an eye opener, in the future I plan on attending this event due to its vast variety of speakers who give great life lesson advice.
Blew my expectations away. Wish I was able to have been a part of something like this as a kid.
