JEDI Launches ‘Build Your Future’ Trades Trailer for Indigenous Youth – Huddle.Today

JEDI is an Indigenous organization dedicated to supporting Indigenous participation in New Brunswick’s economy. It works closely with partners from Indigenous communities, organizations, and more to help encourage Indigenous economic development in New Brunswick.

The JEDI Trades Trailer is roughly 25 feet long and filled with a variety of different interactive stations that focus on different skilled trades, such as plumbing, electrical, and carpentry.

“We really see it as an opportunity for them [Indigenous youth] to see themselves pursuing education in the trades, pursuing a career in the trades, and, you know, seeing it as a long-term career that will help provide them a living throughout their life,” Barnaby tells Huddle.

Barnaby says the Indigenous population is the fastest-growing population in New Brunswick, and with there now being a shortage of workers in the trades, there is a great opportunity for Indigenous people to succeed in this area.

With the province removing trades courses from schools, JEDI aims to bring back that education to the Indigenous communities across New Brunswick. Barnaby says the interactive stations, simulations, and games that are found inside the JEDI Trade Trailer are tailored for youth of all ages.
