Trailblazers in Newport at NCCC

by Jillian Scannell

Trailblazers use a drill to drill two pieces of lumber together.
May 20 - July 3

Are you interested in starting a career in the trades? Are you interested in tools but never had someone teach you how to use them? Apply for Trailblazers !

Trailblazers is our free seven-week training program in construction and renewable energy skills for women and gender-expansive individuals ages 18+. The program provides a safe, non-judgmental environment for participants to build skills, gain confidence, and explore fields that tend to be male-dominated.

Trailblazers is free and no prior experience is necessary. Applications will be accepted up until one week before the class begins. Apply today!

The class will be held two evenings a week, and all day Saturday at the North Country Career Center in Newport, Vermont. Throughout the program, participants get hands-on experience through shop time and build projects, and have the opportunity to participate in a paid onsite work experience with a local employer.
