Review the Program or Pre-requisite requirements

The Builders of the Future Program is a unique vocational program that will offer students the opportunity to study in Carpentry, Electricity and Plumbing Competencies at the First Nations Regional Adult Education Center (FNRAEC) in Kahnawà:ke. The Builders of the Future Program will be offered to Kahnawa’kehró:non on an application basis, annually, for the next four years. Each Program cohort will accept 8 students.

The first cohort will begin in the Fall of 2023, and each Program cohort will be 6-months long.  Students will gain approximately 600 hours of study in Carpentry, Electricity and Plumbing Competencies, followed by potential work placements in these fields.

This 4-year program will expose students to 3 trade programs, with the end goal of having students enter directly into the workforce or return to school to complete the full DEP in the trade program of their choice upon completion. Students who are admitted into the Program will receive a monthly allowance, childcare costs and any relevant study costs associated with attending.  We encourage community members who are serious about obtaining certification in these fields to apply, as there are limited spots available and we are seeking to have 100% successful completion of the program.
