“Great ideas came out of the stations, great information was shared. I understood everything that they had to say!”

“I learned about a few different trades that seemed interesting. I would actually look into one of these trades in the future.”

“The hands on work actually helped me understand what the trades are all about.”

“The role models were cool to talk to and very nice. It was nice to have them available for questions about the trades they work in.”

“It was awesome! It gave me more opportunities. More doors opened to me!”

“It’s nice to see apprenticeship women encouraging other women to work in the trades. It’s also nice to see we don’t have to live in a male dominated world anymore. Back home I am also a woman that likes to do male work outdoors.”

 “The hands on stations were very well attended. The girls were very involved.”

“Love the expert/student bonding at tables.”

“Superb hands on activities, girls were engaged/great info sharing by experts.”

“Very effective information!”

“Great to have this program in Northern communities, not everyone is able to attend workshops in the South.”

We said our goodbyes to some of the role models and those of us from the province’s south spent our last night in the north at Sandy Beach Resort.  We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome for the tour, not-to-mention what a difference it made to have Mother Nature on our side this year! 

 “Life is short, live bold! Be heard, be you,
dream big, take risks,
don’t wait.”
