LETHBRIDGE, AB – A 12-week trades and construction training opportunity for women is coming to Lethbridge College this summer.

The non-profit Women Building Futures organization is partnering with the college to offer hands-on introductory skills in carpentry, welding, electrical, wind turbine tech and heavy-duty mechanics to help women pursue careers in those trades.

Twelve women will be chosen through an application process to participate in the Journeywoman Start program between July 5 and Sept. 29.

In addition to hands-on skills, those students will also participate in career development sessions, meet-ups with industry partners and some academic upgrading opportunities.

Women who are interested in the Journeywoman Start program are encouraged to apply by April 26.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
