Live what you love
God inspires your passions. Where will those passions take you?
Calvin LifeWork prepares you for life after university, from your career to your relationships to your overall success in this fast-paced, ever-changing world. Whatever God is calling you to, we'll help you dive right in!
What you'll learn
Your journey will cover four main areas:
Discover what God is calling you to do and who he is calling you to be. Realize you have gifts that will transcend your career—gifts that you can use at all times for God's kingdom.
Most of us will spend much of our adult life working. Whether you are planning to go to grad school or get hired right after university, we'll help you pursue your career path with both passion and purpose.
Bills, rent, budgeting. Taxes, housing decisions, investing for the future. No matter what intimidates you about managing your finances, we'll equip you to thrive in these areas.
Be a leader not only in your field of work and study, but in your church and community. Your voice matters, and we’ll make sure you know how to use it to lead with conviction.

Throughout the program, career coaches are available to help you dive deeper into any of the program topics, from exploring career options to preparing for internship opportunities.
