Ravyn Regis shares what she learned in her family’s Automotive Business

Ravyn Regis recently participated in Tewatohnhi’saktha’s Skills Link Program and completed a work placement at LTR Automotive, a locally owned auto repair shop here in Kahnawà:ke. When asked about her experience working at LTR Automotive she describes a positive work environment, one that was very pleasant and busy. “I would recommend the Skills Link Program to youth who are in between jobs and or looking to gain experience and help out in a family business like I have.”

The objective of the Skills Link Program is to provide training experiences that support youth in acquiring skills needed for employment. The program also supports our local businesses with their recruitment needs and in some cases with succession planning. Ravyn received her Diploma of College Studies (DEC) in an Administrative Assistant Program and showed keen interest to help her family. “I wanted to help my brother put some structure and organization into his business and help him with the overall administration part of the business and share what I have learned.”

Since completing her time in the Skills Link Program and her work placement at LTR Automotive, Ravyn recently began working as the Invoicing and Order Clerk at Club Rez, a local wholesaler in Kahnawà:ke. Ravyn talks about her experience working at Club Rez as “Great! It is very busy and such a friendly atmosphere to work in, with a friendly staff as well.”

“Tewatohnhi’saktha helped me achieve my goal in helping my brother with his business and they are continuing and doing great without me. Tewatohnhi’saktha helps you achieve and meet your goals and they are always there to help guide you when needed. Overall, a wonderful experience on my employment journey.”
