What is OYAP?
The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program is a school-to-work program where you can work in an apprenticeship position starting in grade 11 or grade 12 through co-op. You can earn high school credits while accumulating apprenticeship hours at your placement. For more information on accelerated OYAP and co-op programs visit: www.hwdsb.on.ca/oyap.

Meet with a Community Outreach and Education Advisor from Mohawk College and start the conversation about “life after high school”! Discuss your interests and skills, to seek out a potential career goal, and then look at the specific pathways to help you reach this goal whether it is college, university, apprenticeships or the workforce. The College in Motion team can offer assistance in the college application process, understand various college program options and how they connect to jobs, help you understand financial aid supports as well as connect you to other appropriate services to make your transition to College a positive experience. Our Mohawk Advisor contact is Kim Greenholm; you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 905-979-4117 .
College & University-Bound Students
If you plan on attending College or University in the fall of the following year, it is important to note that we offer seminars showing you how to apply. Glendale sends your marks off electronically to the Colleges and Universities four times in the school year. You will be responsible for checking online at either the Ontario College Application System (OCAS) and/or Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC) to ensure that your marks are there. If you have any problems, Ms. Dubec or your Counsellor will help you. Please check the Guidance HUB page for the updated presentations for college and university application information or click on the links below.

This session will have a friendly reminder regarding supplemental applications and also include when to expect offers/when confirmations of offers are due, and residence/meal plan guidance.
