Developing a network of support in Yukon communities and adapting entrepreneurial programming and services for rural entrepreneurs to prepare for future shocks.
This 2-year initiative aims at helping rural Yukon respond to the pandemic and prepare for the workforce of the future. Learning from the needs of the communities, we will support our Continuing Studies division and partners to adapt tools and training in a culturally relevant way, and strive to expand programs in the face of the new economic reality.
This program relies on a strong network of mentors, coaches, and peer supports with varied skills, expertise and cultural backgrounds.
