Prince George, B.C.- School District 57 students in the Skilled Trades and Career Programs have a shot at a special award.
The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of BC (ICBA) has donated $5,000 to the School District to support five awards of $1,000 each to support students entering trades programs.
The awards will be available through an application process.
“We are committed to supporting the promotion of trades throughout British Columbia and are passionate about the development of skilled training for youth” said Mike Davis, Vice President, Regional Initiatives for ICBA.
Last month, ICBA donated $25,000 to the College of New Caledonia’s Trades Program and will be providing an additional $20,000 to regional College trades initiatives in the coming months.
