In the summer of 2020, the Yukon Literacy Coalition launched a youth entrepreneurship initiative that supports and offers opportunities and guidance to Yukon youth (12-18 years old) who want to work for themselves and with others. The Yukon Literacy Coalition assists with start-up costs, marketing, budgeting and anything else to help the youth succeed with their project.
The Yukon Literacy Coalition in partnership with CAFN and Yukon College are working together to provide training and employment to CAFN citizens through innovative and creative programming. Among other things the Yukon Literacy Coalition assisted in the development of a greenhouse/gardening program which is thriving in year three. As well as providing lots of vegetables for the community many citizens have benefited from this work/training opportunity.
