Fort Nelson First Nation and Chalo School invited CFBC team members into the community to host a month-long Trades Exploration workshop for FNFN members.
The workshop, organized and managed by CFBC Community Catalysts, Kathi Dickie and Cyndi Bonn, introduced participants to careers in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, welding, and mechanics.
Randy Grey, Luke Oullette, and Shane Roy from CFBC were also onsite to provide in-person instruction for participants to get hands-on, practical experience with tools. While Justin Young and Roy Williams joined in virtually to help participants build the soft skills to fill their career planning toolbox.
The exploration workshop introduced participants to careers in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, welding, and mechanics. For many of the participants, this was their first time getting hands-on with skilled trade related learning. Their projects and new design-build skills put broad smiles on their faces and left many participants dreaming of future opportunities as skilled trade professionals. In fact, one of the participants is moving on to post-secondary in the fall with dreams of becoming a shop class teacher to help empower the next generation!
