Convergence - Monthly (Remote) Speaker Series Begins

Former McRoberts and Steveston London Students had a vision. They wondered how they can help high school students get a glimpse into possible post high school careers. To help, they have created Convergence, an opportunity to gain insight on the personal lives of young people who have already embarked on their next steps beyond school.

Looking for Direction or Clarification on your planned Direction?

 

Choosing what to do after high school can be overwhelming. How do you decide on what you like if you barely know what is out there? Created by McRoberts and SLSS alumni who were just like you, Convergence aims to bring passionate community members to high school students through monthly speaker series, Instagram features, mentorship opportunities and more! Through Convergence, you can peer into the unfiltered lives of people in acting to medicine, gain insight on personal journeys, and receive genuine advice on how to pursue similar passions.
