Part 1: Phil Jarvis - Educator and Innovator - Talks Career Development

In this first of two episodes, Phil Jarvis joins us to discuss his career in education, in particular his passion for career development in young people. Phil challenges the notion of tradition school and learning, which is evidenced in our conversation. Tune in for more and be sure to tune in next week for Part 2.  Michael Gangitano guest appears once again- welcome back!

Phil Jarvis created CHOICES, an online career exploration and planning system used by over 90% of Canada’s secondary and postsecondary schools. He led Canada Prospects, The Real Game Series, Canada WorkinfoNET, the Blueprint for Lifework Designs, and other pan-Canadian and international projects deployed in over 100,000 classrooms across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and beyond. He believes helping youth discover how they want to make the world better - their purpose - should be job 1 for education! He advocates for collaborative, community-based learning projects linked to real-world issues students care deeply about, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These hands-on learning projects enable students at all levels to acquire the self-knowledge, real-world knowledge, social-emotional skills, and grit they will need for success and happiness in an uncertain, rapidly changing world. Over 25,000 school superintendents, principals, teachers, and career counselors are among his social media followers. For more on Phil see
