Kal Tire Skilled Trades Program Sees Second Year

Kal Tire and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada have launched the second year of Skilled4Success, a national program designed to help young people explore, discover and develop career possibilities in the skilled trades.

Kal Tire piloted the Skilled4Success program with youth participating from 15 Boys & Girls Clubs across Canada last year. There was such a positive response that it has become an ongoing national program of Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada.

The program offers job skills training, career planning advice and information about apprenticeship programs. Teens are provided job-shadow opportunities with skilled professionals at Kal Tire stores or other work environments. The program also teaches job search strategies, resume writing and general skills that can be applied to a range of careers.
