As an educator, you have an important role to play in connecting youth with trades. ITA’s Youth Programs give students the chance to try out different trades and get a head start on an apprenticeship—both in class and on the job—while they’re still in high school.

Youth Discover the Trades

ITA and the BC Ministry of Education have teamed up to connect students, parents and educators with engaging local tradespeople. The program gives students insight into career opportunities in the trades.

Your project must offer hands-on trade experiences for students in grades 5 through 10. It should include additional classroom learning both before and after the event. Project approvals are subject to funding availability.
