"Work experience should ideally be a meaningful reflection of the individual student's abilities and interests.
Success in getting and keeping a job is a complex accomplishment for any individual. Factors which affect this success, such as physical stamina, social interaction, personal hygiene, motivation and task oriented behavior are interrelated and should be developed over a series of years. These behaviors and attitudes can be reinforced and integrated into all areas of the curriculum and in all grades."
~from British Columbia Ministry of Education
"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life." -Author Unknown
