Introduction

Stories of Transition is a research project that has been fully funded by the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) through Dalhousie University.

The purpose of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of the educational and occupational pathways that high school graduates take after graduation with a particular emphasis on the supports, roadblocks, and detours they have encountered along the way. The results of this study have helped young people and the adults who help guide them, both their parents and career development professionals, to understand the challenges facing high school graduates and the many possible pathways they can follow when continuing their education and finding employment.
