Tradeworks- Vancouver B.C.

05-11-2009-021

I bought this wooden magnet at EPIC this year.

This was at a booth by Tradeworks, Their booth was filled with beautiful wood boxes, small furniture and wood products.

Tradeworks is Vancouver based pre-employment program designed for woman who live in the inner city.   This  organization teaches woman basic joinery and woodworking skills.  The program also provides information on registered trades and apprenticeship programs and includes training in First Aid.

It also provides valuable  work experience on community projects; these opportunities permit students to refine their new skills.

I love this little magnet, the message is simple, and the people who work for this program are enthusiastic and driven to support women to help them become employable and skilled.

This was one of the least expensive purchases I made at EPIC this weekend, but the value behind it is immeasurable.
