GREAT GETS MUCH NEEDED BUS
Grand River Employment and Training (GREAT) is happy to announce that on October 9, 2012, it unveiled its 20-passenger bus. The bus was financially sponsored by GREAT, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Science Education and Employment Development (SEED), Ogwehoweh Skills and Trades Training Centre (OSTTC) and Hamilton-Brantford, Ontario Building and Construction Trades. The bus was purchased as one response to the “Six Nations Transportation Service Feasibility Study’ which was completed in March 8, 2011. The bus will be used to transport GREAT client and students to training institutions and to jobs in the local area.
Six Nations Cultural Experience Initiative
In July, 2011 Grand River Employment and Training hosted the Six Nations Cultural Experience Conference. In follow up and in collaboration with several community organizations, the Six Nations Cultural Experience Planning Committee was formed with the purpose of developing a strategic plan that will give visitors to Six Nations an authentic and interactive experience of its culture. The intent of the strategy is to:
- increase visitors’ understanding and appreciation of Haudenosaunee culture;
- serve to build a strong economy;
- enhance or develop relationships with other communities; and,
- help develop a strong nation of people who are proud of their history and lifestyle.
In addition, the Six Nations Cultural Experience Strategy will create and provide training and employment opportunities in the cultural tourism sector. In the coming months GREAT will be seeking the community’s input and feedback into the five-year strategy by developing and administering surveys, hosting focus groups, and holding a community forum.
