Trade Warriors Proposal Development

Project Information

ARDN, in partnership with Avatar Media, is developing a proposal for a project called Trade Warriors: an interactive website that will introduce Aboriginal youth to potential career opportunities in the trades.  This project will improve the employment prospects of Aboriginal youth, increase the number of Aboriginal youth that complete high school and enter post-secondary education and training, and tap into this potential to address the current and future labour shortages in Alberta.

It will be modeled after the successful Health Warriors Network.

The proposal summary is available for download. If you are interested in seeing the full proposal, please contact Melissa.
