 Ontario Youth Consultancy Program

Good morning Retired Teachers of Ontario,

A new youth consultancy has recently been launched, Curious Life consulting (www.curiouslife.ca).

It offers a holistic approach and support for students aged 14 through 20, for career planning, education options, and transition to adult life. Sessions will be offered in person in Kingston, Ontario, and online or by phone across Ontario.

I've included the news release below. It would be much appreciated if you could distribute this to anyone who may be interested in this service, in your Retired Teachers network or otherwise.

New youth consultancy offers support to Canadian youth to prep for career, post-secondary education, and adult life
Kingston, November 12, 2013 – At a time where only one in two young adults in Ontario has a job (the worst unemployment rate since 1976), and one out of every 12 students drops out of school, a new youth consultancy service offers crucial assistance for young people of all backgrounds to land on their feet.
Curious Life Consulting, a newly launched service in Kingston, provides much-needed guidance and personalized assessment to help youth aged 14 through 20 years make informed decisions about their career, education, and starting adult life. One-on-one sessions help teens maximize on their abilities and interests, and then work towards setting goals to find education and jobs they love. People of this age are about to embark on most likely the biggest change of their lives so far. They have at least a decade of schooling under their belt, and are now getting pressure to decide “what to do with their lives” but face dozens of viable opportunities for working, learning, and living.
Different than generic career counselling or education planning, Curious Life offers a holistic approach and highly individualized attention, resources, and strategies. Because sessions are offered on an “as-needed” basis, it avoids the need to commit to expensive packaged plans as most centers demand. Youth across Canada can reach out for help through Skype sessions.
“Young people need the freedom to pursue their interests and strengths, and figure out the joys and trials of becoming an adult,” explains Ashley Wightman, founder of Curious Life Consulting. “If you’ve ever felt that your teen lacks direction, or if you as a young person feel overwhelmed about what next steps to take, we can help.”
Tapping into the knowledge and expertise of someone who has experience to guide young people in helping make important and everyday decisions can save families years of confusion, time, and money.
About Curious Life
Ashley Wightman has 15 years’ experience including education administration, career counselling, building customized learning plans, and youth outreach, and works at Queen’s University. She follows the ethic of respecting the rights of youth to create their own life path, and is comfortable providing support and guidance in innovative strategies to help achieve self-designed goals.
