Two Programs at Nokee Kwe, Looking for Participants

About Nokee Kwe 

Established in 1978, Indigenous-led Nokee Kwe is an Employment and Education Centre that helps individuals find rewarding and fulfilling employment opportunities, improve literacy, and develop the skills needed in today’s workforce. Services are geared to individuals experiencing unemployment or difficulty with career and life transitions.

Nokee Kwe is a charitable non-profit organization whose programs are primarily funded through the Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development, the City of London, and private/business donors.

Nanda Digital skills Training:

Nokee Kwe’s new Nanda Program teaches digital skills virtually from beginners level with no previous knowledge/experience required.  Nanda offers an interactive and fun learning environment (150 hours of training distributed in two courses always online) with online support as students learn the fundamentals of programming at their own pace. Students are provided with a login and password and a link to join the instructor via zoom on Monday (beginner) or Friday (intermediate level) at 6 pm, with questions or comments. Students can also book one-on-one meetings with the instructor.  This program´s focus is Indigenous women, but we can include men and others who might be part of a marginalized group, i.e. youth, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2, and BIPOC communities”.  The training is a “learn-at-your-own-pace”, students can take 7.5 hr/week taking 5 months to finish, but it can be done much sooner, Nokee Kwe has incentives for individuals graduating within 2-2.5 months.  Here is a video on Nanda:

+Positive Voice

Nokee Kwe is now accepting registrations for their upcoming session of Positive Voice, which for now is being delivered virtually due to covid-19. Established in 2016 by Nokee Kwe, +Positive Voice is an award-winning, innovative, professional development, and bridging program that supports the development of positive narratives and positive community connections.

Our participants are urban Indigenous women, 18 years and older, who are transitioning to employment or education.As part of our 7-week program, +Positive Voice participants learn more about social and digital media, photography, and writing positive narratives. The program is taught through hands-on experience-when possible- and interaction with guest speakers such as artists and municipal, provincial, and federal government representatives.  The content created by our participants is shared through digital and print materials, which empowers the participants by amplifying their message. The program is participant-driven and overseen by an advisory committee of Indigenous women and community practitioners.
