Through the program, participants will immerse themselves in traditional teachings, gaining valuable insights and knowledge from Elders and Traditional Knowledge holders. Additionally, students will participate in workshops tailored to enhance practical skills, including resume building, proficiency in Microsoft applications, and professional communication techniques. This holistic approach ensures that participants not only acquire critical academic skills but also develop the essential tools required to navigate the professional world with confidence.
