Exciting and engaging activities have continued to occur within the Construction Foundation and Skills Ready teams. Despite a change in pace and approach to everyday life due to the COVID-19 pandemic, both teams have continued to coordinate and execute on several initiatives and workshops over the past weeks.
This month’s CFBC ‘Here For Good’ blog post featured Don Roberts, a retired machinist from Sooke on Vancouver Island who recently donated hundreds of carving blades to First Nation youth through the Foundation. Those youth will now benefit from Roberts’ traditional blades as they explore and learn traditional carving techniques across the province.

The Foundation’s Skills Ready team spent the second week of August introducing small groups of youth to a number of trades-related activities through a Trades Exploration Camp in South Vancouver. Partnering with Milieu Children & Family services, the Foundation was able to guide participants aged 15-18 through a weeklong project, as well as several individual projects that helped familiarize them with the process of creating projects using a variety of skilled trades techniques and tools.
