Training program for older workers accepting applications until Aug. 31
WHITEHORSE—In 2016, Heather McIntyre was between jobs.
“I left the company that I had been with for 33 years, and I didn’t want to just jump into the next thing,” she said. “I always thought I might want to go back to school, but I was at a bit of a loss.”
She heard about Yukon College’s Targeted Initiatives for Older Workers (TIOW) Program, which offers unemployed people between the ages of 55 and 64 training and support in entering or re-entering the workforce. McIntyre took the program from January to April 2017, and soon after she was hired as the Executive Director of the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre.
