In partnership with business, it will also offer fulltime, year-round employment training for adults in fields where there is local demand. BridgeCAT’s work complements that of other educational and youth-focused agencies and benefits from the support of a number of organizations including the Construction Association of Nova Scotia.
BridgeCAT is offering its first programs, four weekend arts workshops for high-school-age youth, during April. The workshops in mosaic, graffiti art, spoken word and dance will be held at the Centre’s facility at 50 Queen Street in Dartmouth.
