Here she attended the orientation program and is now enjoying working with cats two days a week.

Allison Duffield the new Executive Director of the program states "this is the beauty of the Career Partnership Program as it assists students in making career choices which can save money and enable students to make the correct choice for their future. If a student is not enamoured with a particular job shadow they can try a different career path.The program is a priceless tool in assisting students as they benefit from the support of the local business community whom without their dedication and help our program would not be so successful."
