The Yukon-Koyukuk School District (YKSD) is seeking proposals from experienced construction training instructors with master-level expertise, particularly those with a background in working with high school students. We are requesting one or more five-day intensive workshops to be offered at 1 to 10 of our remote schools. The workshops will focus on providing instruction in basic shop use and fundamental carpentry skills.

Program Details:

  1. Instructor Qualifications: The proposed instructor should possess master-level experience in construction and demonstrate a proven ability to effectively engage and instruct high school students.
  2. Workshop Duration: Each workshop should span five consecutive days, ensuring comprehensive instruction and hands-on learning opportunities.
  3. Target Audience: The workshops will target high school students, providing them with practical knowledge and skills related to basic shop use and carpentry.
  4. Basic Shop Use: The curriculum should cover essential safety protocols, tool identification, proper tool usage, and shop organization. Students should gain a solid foundation in operating various tools and equipment commonly used in a workshop.
  5. Fundamental Carpentry Skills: The workshops should introduce students to basic carpentry skills, including measuring, cutting, joining, framing, and finishing techniques. Emphasis should be placed on safety practices, construction principles, and hands-on practice.
