Dear Metlakatla Members,
The Coastal Training Centre wants to hear from Metlakatla members living in the Prince Rupert area that want to obtain employment, but are unsure of what line of work they would like to get into. The CTC is in the process of developing a Job Shadowing Program (Mentoring) for Metlakatla members that have just graduated, have never been employed or are not employed at this time. We would like to hear from you regarding the type of work/employment/career you would like to explore.
