The programmme is aimed at encouraging and empowering youth to ‘get into a trade’ to help prepare them to enter the work field. We want to incorporate technology as well as a back to basic approach. This will include working with skilled tradesman with years of experience and knowledge with a focus on trades such as, plumbing, carpentry and mechanics – and also life skills such as cooking and sewing. We will target youth ages 11 to 18, and by the end of our program all participants will have learned life skills such as resume writing, work ethics, integrity, time management, etc. We would need volunteers who are willing to share their expertise and laptops for the technical aspect of this concept. Our goal is to give insight on different work fields, assist them in selecting a trade, preparing them for higher education to ultimately securing employment once the program has been completed to an acceptable standard.
