🤕 Injury leads to new opportunities. ⚖️
Restless while recovering from an injury, Malcolm learned about the Justice Institute of British Columbia: JIBC (facebook.com) 's Justice and Public Safety Certificate program for Aboriginal learners. After 20 years in the construction industry – he was ready for a change – so he enrolled. The program, delivered in conjunction with Native Education College, concludes in April and from there Malcolm wants to return to JIBC to get on the path to become a parole or probation officer.
Malcolm Stewart is completing the Justice and Public Safety Certificate program provided by the Justice Institute of British Columbia and the Native Education College. Malcolm’s experience has opened his eyes to new potential career opportunities and encouraged him to continue his studies in law enforcement.
He also hopes his new love of learning will inspire his children. Malcolm says he wants them to understand, “If you don’t enjoy what you’re working at you won’t like your job. You find something you’re passionate about and you work at it.”
