Impact of Changes to Alberta Education Off-Campus Handbook
8 HOUR RULE Does it matter?
This survey is being conducted by CAREERS: The Next Generation to determine if there will be negative impacts on opportunities for high-school youth (15-19 yrs) to engage in paid internships if there is an 8 hour maximum imposed on eligible hours for off-campus work experience/paid internships.
CAREERS is committed to enabling youth on their path to rewarding careers. We do this by working with employers to open opportunities for high-school students to earn while they learn as part of building a talent pool of future skilled workers. In 2014-15 CAREERS, in partnership with Alberta high schools, linked over 1050 companies with more than 1500 youth for paid internships.
