Success Stories

Elijah - Skilled Trades Academy

Elijah came to the Next Generation Zone after his brother had successfully completed courses. Elijah is working towards an education in physical training but was offered an opportunity to take part in the 2019 Skilled Trades Academy, which taught students construction and trades skills by building a tiny house, all while earning workplace certifications and a competitive wage. Elijah hadn’t considered construction as a career path, but now plans to pursue the trades in order to earn enough money to follow his dream of opening a gym. We are so proud of Elijah and can’t wait to see what he will accomplish!
