Thank you to our Youth Discover the Trades Day sponsors!
We are so grateful to our sponsors! Thank you to everyone who donated materials, funds, and expertise to the program. Our Youth Discover the Trades Day with Columneetza students was a success because of your support.
What is Youth Discover the Trades Day?
Each year we provide 120 students from grade 7 the opportunity to focus on careers in the trades! Students rotate through three of four trades stations including welding, electrical, carpentry, and mechanical/millwright. Stations are facilitated by apprentices/trainees, trades instructors, and trade specific journey persons. Each activity provides students with the opportunity to learn more about a specific trade and leave with projects created in their respective workshops. Students will have an engaging, hands-on experience applying skills used in a variety of trade occupations while making connections with tradespersons in their communities.
