We are excited to share our brand new initiative, #SkillsAtHome.

#SkillsAtHome is an initiative designed to celebrate the skills of individuals across the Northwest Territories, while connecting youth. Our goal is to provide fun and educational activities and resources to engage with youth while teaching them about careers in skilled trades and technology. Best of all, it can all be done from home.

Have you recently completed a DIY project that you want to show off to the world? Share it on social media with the hashtag #SkillsAtHome to be featured on our website! Are you looking for a fun activity to participate in with your child while stuck at home? Check our website routinely, as we will be sharing resources and activities here in the coming weeks.


Check back often, as we will be continuously updating this section.

Do you have what it takes to take on a trade? Find out and learn more by playing this fun online board game.

Print this fun and handy workbook out, and offer youth a fun and interactive way to discover skilled trade and technology career opportunities.
