Trades Start is a skills development program for youth run by The Salvation Army in Wiarton. This 20-week course helps youth who are experiencing difficulties in high school, or who have recently finished school, develop a trade in the Carpentry or Hospitality fields that could lead to a steady skilled job. Basic life skills such as financial literacy, nutrition, building a resume, and job searching are also provided to students. The entire experience builds positive relationships for youth and improves mental wellness, enabling participants to succeed in their next steps in life.
