Yunesit’in construction education

Since 2014, DNA has been working closely with the Yunesit’in Government on a unique project aimed at increasing the participation of First Nation members in the design, management and construction of community infrastructure and buildings. Yunesit’in wanted to build an inclusive process where all engagement activities focused on diverse learning styles. Youth have been extensively involved in this project as they have shown the most interest in education and training in the design and construction industry. Phase 2 of the project identifies strategies to train youth to construct two teacherages and ultimately a school gym.
