ABOUT THE SKILLS OPPORTUNITIES SHOWCASE (SOS) TRAILER

The “SOS” mobile showcase trailer is back on the road for the eighth year!

The Four County Labour Market Planning Board partnering with the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) have created a unique approach to improving awareness of career opportunities. Originally designed as a 5-year project, the SOS trailer has proved this method to be a more personal, interactive, spontaneous and engaging way of learning about local career opportunities. This hands-on venture has allowed educational pathways to deliver a fun and engaging experience to over 20,000 + visitors!

The 24’ long trailer travels to strategic events, schools and other community functions highlighting career and training opportunities in Bruce, Grey, Huron and Perth counties. Our objective is to reach students and parents to inform them about career opportunities through an interactive experience.

The trailer provides up-to-date labour market information specific to our area and interactive activities to students and job seekers.  Current stations highlight specific careers and we are exploring new stations to be added in the future!

Stations currently include:

  • Welding
  • Hair Styling
  • Electrical
  • Excavating
  • Automotive
  • Dexterity Challenges
