Life Skills to Leadership Employment Training Framework Project

YAWC is leading this research project to address the employment training needs for our clientele.

The purpose is to develop a competency- and mentorship-based, training program that is culturally relevant and inclusive in supporting Indigenous women and gender diverse people in Yukon and northern BC and applying the life skills needed to gain meaningful employment. The project also aims to support their personal and professional development to resiliency and leadership positions in society.

Hired to deliver this project is independent contractor Shung-Sun Consulting, with contributions from Rhoda Merkel and Strategies North Advisory.

The project is funded by the Yukon Government Community Development Fund which ends September 2021.

Stay tuned for project developments.
