Salon offers work opportunities for Continuing Education graduates

October 23, 2020

A new hair and esthetics salon in Frog Lake First Nation is providing employment opportunities for Portage College graduates. Former students from the college’s Continuing Education Aesthetics course have worked together to create the salon that is now up and running. The salon is located at the Careers Building on Portage’s Frog Lake campus and is supported by a partnership between Frog Lake Chief and Council, Frog Lake Income Support, HRD (Human Resource Development) and Employment and Training. “I’m so glad to see our credentialed graduates use their training by creating a locally operated business,” said Al Bertschi, Associate Dean at Portage College. “The opportunity for our graduates and this partnership is a great example of building a community.” Portage College | NationTalk (AB)
