Training

The Northern Lights Mentorship Group training program is available to young adults between the ages of 18-35. It runs from June to March and consists of curriculum learning and practice followed by paid job placement with one of our partners.

The trades we offer include:

  • Carpenter
  • Drywall Finisher and Plasterer
  • Industrial Electrician
  • Plumber
  • Tilesetter

Our comprehensive training goes beyond learning trades skills. It also includes life skills such as health and nutrition, job site etiquette, and organization practices. We will also facilitate participants accessing other community services to support their health and wellbeing.

Once job training is complete, participants come back for further training based on feedback from their worksite. This ensures that our participants are ready for employment and their apprenticeship. NLMG remains involved with participants as long as they need support for up to five years.

Contact us for more information about applying to our training program.
