JABC TechWorks introduces B.C. youth to the jobs of the future

JABC TechWorks is an exciting multi-school program experience that introduces B.C. students to a variety of tech and tech-related careers. Because technology is a leading economic driver of growth, the demand for skilled employees is sky high.

  • High production quality digital content aimed at student learners in grades 9-12

  • A variety of technology sub-sectors to ensure that the breadth of career opportunities related to tech in B.C. are well represented

  • Live Q&A sessions between the presenters & students that accompany the digital content
