SCDSB students attending skilled trades networking dinner for womenNovember 7, 2013 Category: NewsBack to News Page

​More than 80 young women in Grades 9 to 12 will have the opportunity to network with tradeswomen from the community at the Skills Work for Women Networking Dinner on Nov. 13 at Georgian College.

The event is designed to foster a positive environment where female secondary school students will have the opportunity to speak with experienced professionals in skilled trades, and hear guest speakers discuss the challenges and rewards of their chosen career.
 
This event is hosted by Skills Canada. The cost for SCDSB students attending this event are covered by the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP).
 
OYAP is available to all full-time students who are at least 16 years old and have 16 high school credits. Students must be taking cooperative education and may be registered as an apprentice to their employer with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. All of the hours they work in co-op and any part-time work may then be credited towards their apprenticeship. Students are also placed on the trade school waiting list at the time of their registration.
