Building Essential Skills and Best Practices:Guyana-CNA Furniture Making & Cabinetmaking Project

This project promotes peer-to-peer, faculty led cross-cultural learning and humanitarian support. Students in both College of the North Atlantic (Canada) and Government Technical Institute (Guyana) will work together to establish a learner community vis-a-vis industrial trades by sharing their project work, skills, and cultural diversity through a virtual platform. As part of the initial phase, the Outbound Student Mobility steering committee has undertaken the framework to action this plan. The ultimate goal is to undertake a joint humanitarian project such as Habitat for Humanity in Guyana where Guyanese and Canadian skilled trade students work side-by-side.
