Co Op Program

Planning for Post-Secondary Success

The HDCH Co op Program allows students to complete a community connected placement with an industry or organization employer while earning credits towards their OSSD and HDCH Diploma.

  • Develop valued skills that will assist them in future employment
  • Identify personal strengths, gifts and abilities
  • Grow in creativity, ability to learn and problem solve
