PREP Programs

College and university preparation for african nova scotian students

College & University PREP

PREP offers college and university preparation to African Nova Scotian students through PREP Cohorts. Students from across Nova Scotia can register to participate. PREP Cohorts meet once or twice a month either through a student's school or online from September - June to align with the school year. Students get guidance, tools and support on a number of topics: career interests, program options and fields of study, admissions, financial literacy, scholarships and bursaries, college and university level expectations, studying skills, reading and writing at the post-secondary level, time management, networking and relationship building. Students involved in our PREP Cohorts can also gain access to additional experiences and opportunities, including our Student Internships and Self-Care & Wellness Retreats.

Student Internships

PREP's 2022 Student Internships Placements will provide students with a week-long paid internship placement over March Break where they receive a stipend of $750. Internships help students gain valuable experience to grow professionally, and make connections with BIPOC career mentors in fields they are considering for career paths. The program provides students with workforce development training, employability skills, career exploration and job readiness training in high school before they transition to college and university.

Self-care & Wellness Retreats

PREP's Self-care & Wellness Retreats give students the opportunity to explore culturally informed information and resources before they transition to college and university. We explore stress, anxiety, healthy eating, healthy routines and self-help by developing self care routines through yoga, music, exercise, mediation and food.
