NAIT welding camps spark interest among indigenous teens

Published on July 11, 2018

Teens aged 12 to 15 from the Alexander First Nation will get a taste of careers in welding at NAIT camps this week and next

Students will work on a series of welding projects through the week, with a BBQ lunch and celebration Friday including a blessing from NAIT elder Walter Bonaise.
