2013 Education Works Champions

They live in your communities, go to your school or work next to you.

They have each overcome their own obstacles and challenges and have truly inspirational stories.

These are our Education Works Champions.

The Education Works Alliance asked for stories from Brant, Brantford, Haldimand, Norfolk, New Credit and Six Nations and we got many back.

Whether it is going back to finish Grade 12, staying focused on upgrading their skills while on the job or returning to college or university, education has been an important goal for our Champions. They have changed their lives because of this commitment to learning.

Our Champions may have overcome illness, personal tragedy, job losses or financial strains, but they stuck to their goals. They used their own resourcefulness, but they also used many supports available in the community: career counselling, financial support, programs like Second Career and Steps to Success, and family and friends.
