TORONTO — Skills Ontario is hosting summer camps for youth across the province entering Grades 7, 8, and 9 to introduce them to explore career paths in the skilled trades and technology.
During the months of July and August, students will participate in hands-on activities, skilled trade and technology workshops and industry tours. The camps will be led by Skills Ontario staff and skilled professionals. Skills Ontario is also hosting camps for French-speaking and Indigenous youth and will also be offering virtual workshops throughout the summer.
“We’re thrilled to bring back our popular Summer Camps program,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “It is crucial for youth to not only explore opportunities in the skilled trades and technologies, but also to build their skills for the workforce and consider what career path is right for them. The skilled trades and technologies offer incredible pathways, and it is Skills Ontario’s mission to highlight that to youth and to help support Ontario’s future leaders’ career exploration journeys.”
