Once a year we offer the Youth and Women Exploring Trades conference to give high school girls and non-binary folks throughout the territory a unique opportunity to learn about different trades, build projects, practice skills and explore what careers and training opportunities are available in the Yukon.
We believe that experiential trades opportunities are important for all students. We focus on girls and non-binary students during our conference because we see that girls and non-binary folks have less informal exposure to trades and shop opportunities and often are less likely to engage in mixed-gender trades programs. Over the past 20 years of the conference we have seen the difference YWETT has made in the trades careers of students.
