With so many choices of what to be and how to get there, it’s no wonder choosing College is no easy task! Luckily Ontario Colleges and FPM3’s Picture Your Future Tour have teamed up make it easier by helping students visualize what it’s like to be in their dream job after their college experience. Last Thursday, our #PictureYourFutureTour team visited Algonquin College where they helped some 330 students from the area check out the vast amount of choices they have at the Pembroke Campus.

The goal of our province-wide excursion is not only to promote the colleges of Ontario, but to encourage youth to have the crucial conversation about their post-secondary future with parents and teachers. We aim to nurture the desire to learn and experience hands-on new things by relaying the importance of considering the options for post-secondary studies. Armed with their aspirations and the right knowledge, these students will soon be ready to set out on the road to success. It’s incredible how much can be fit into a van with enough determination.
