New program prepares Indigenous youth to be entrepreneurs – CNC
A new program at the College of New Caledonia (CNC) will guide entrepreneurial-minded Indigenous youth on how to take their business ideas from concept to reality.
The LaKles Way-hut: Business Start-Up for Indigenous Youth program provides students with 12 weeks of training in entrepreneurship, skills for success, occupational, life skills, digital marketing, and cultural awareness to gain the knowledge and confidence to start a business or further their education.
This program is funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada-British Columbia Workforce Development Agreement.
“Training and education ensure Indigenous youth have the necessary skills to overcome obstacles that come with starting any company or business venture and forge their own path,” said Anne Kang, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training. “Programs like the LaKles Way-hut support Indigenous youth to turn their business ideas into realities that provide a multitude of benefits for their communities and British Columbia.”
