Launching a New Course

automotive-vocational-trainingThe first course in “basic automotive repair and maintenance” was offered to a group of young men recently. Automotive technicians from Canada volunteered to come spend a month teaching, and in doing so provided young men here with a unique learning opportunity. In the words of one of the students,

“The course helped me a lot in both the theory and the practical. I’m already using the skills I learned here at Mission Farm. I was able to bleed the backhoe and do some simple maintenance. I would love to attend another training time like the one we just had. My dream is to be a mechanic.”

We trust this will be the first of many such courses that help young people learn skills needed to gain employment.
