The North Delta Rotary Club is providing bursaries for graduating local students pursuing trades training.
During a recent directors meeting, the North Delta Rotary Club approved $15,300 in bursaries for graduates of the five North Delta secondary schools and adult graduates of Delta Community College.
The new bursaries are intended for students committed to pursuing careers in the trades, with preference given to those those accepted into a full-time trades program at a registered B.C. post-secondary institution. Evidence of community service and demonstrated financial need will also be considered when selecting the successful awards recipients.
A press release form the Rotary club states that, according to B.C.’s Labour Market Outlook, a variety of industries are expected to have thousands of job openings in skilled trades over the coming years. Many of these occupations may require on-the-job training and in-class training as a pre-requisite, and offer excellent earning potential.
Including the bursaries, the North Delta Rotary Club has given a total of $37,300 back to the community during the first three months of 2021.
