Career Opportunities for Youth, Training and Work Experience (COYOTE) is a program for youth (age 18-29) of Indigenous Heritage, newcomer youth or youth experiencing barriers. The program is approached from two learning perspectives: traditional and mainstream education. Our community partner, Working Skills Centre (WSC) provides certificate training as part of its licensed career college, Academy of Computer & Employment Skills. Specifically this 32-week training enhances employability in mainstream medical facilities, at the same time developing competencies integrating traditional and mainstream healing practices. The program includes computer training, traditional learning, special ceremonies, practical work experience, a work placement with an employer, job search assistance and job retention support.
