Position Description

Women in Trades Training is expanding our Youth Division to double the number of girls in trades camps we offer in the summer months. We need a student to help us with curriculum development and specifically with organizing the curriculum we already have and modifying the information to bring it to an elementary level for instruction. We want to produce a workbook for each of 4 camps. We host grade 4-6 girls for a variety of trades experiences in one-week experiential camps held in the trades shops at OC. We are well positioned to continue with rapid growth in this area and expect to double the amount of youth programming each of the next 2 years. Student would work in the trades office alongside the WITT team.
