Griffin Jaeger
December 2, 2020

Ever wondered what it would be like to get a taste of your dream job before you enter the field? In Ontario, Canada, all high school students must complete 40 hours of community service to graduate. Volunteering and experiential education provide the perfect opportunity to reach out to a field you are passionate about and test the waters. It's all about discovery, exploration, and building confidence.

If you’re struggling to find these opportunities, this week’s guest has put together the perfect solution.

Meet Janelle Hinds, entrepreneur, renowned public speaker, and equity, diversity, and inclusion consultant. Janelle is also the founder of Helping Hands, a youth-led organization that focuses on helping young people navigate the system and figure out where to volunteer to develop new skills and discover new fields.

In this episode, we chat about topics like:

  • The value of experiential education and volunteering
  • The importance of active listening and empathy, and how they're intertwined
  • Getting rid of bad habits
  • How to showcase a genuine passion
  • The importance of building confidence
