NENAS program encouraging females to race into trades

A unique program is helping to promote young females involvement in the trades. Go Karts For Girls is an annual summer program, as well as community go kart race, intending to promote female interest and involvement in the trades industry.

The program, presented by NENAS, engages the female participants to develop skills which are traditionally seen as “male”, in a safe and respectful environment.

Participating girls are exposed to a variety of new skills and possible future career options, which are delivered by qualified instructors.

Interested females must be between the ages of 11-16.

Each group of young females will be challenged to build a working go kart, which will be featured in a community celebration, and will even get fired up for a race.

The program will run from Monday, July 16 until Friday, July 27, with the big race scheduled to take place at the Encana Events Centre June 27.

For more information, or to register for this year’s program, contact Kellie, Darwin or Koby at NENAS by calling 250-263-9919 or 250-785-0887.
