Carpentry Camp

The Yukon-Koyukuk School District (YKSD) is inviting proposals for a one-week Carpentry Skills Training Program to be conducted at one of our rural sites/schools. The program aims to provide students with hands-on experience and foundational knowledge in carpentry, focusing on the construction of wood sheds or other relevant projects. We encourage interested training providers to submit proposals that include a cost per student based on a participant range of 10 to 16 students.

Program Details:

  1. Duration: The training program should span a minimum of one week to ensure comprehensive skill development and project completion.
  2. Participants: The program will accommodate a participant range of 10 to 16 students. The target participants will be determined based on interest and availability.
  3. Carpentry Skills Training: The proposed curriculum should cover essential carpentry skills, such as measuring, cutting, joining, framing, and finishing. Emphasis should be placed on safety protocols, proper tool usage, and construction techniques relevant to wood sheds or other selected projects.
  4. Project-Based Learning: The program should provide students with hands-on opportunities to apply their newly acquired carpentry skills in the construction of wood sheds or other practical projects. These projects should allow students to experience the entire construction process, from planning to completion.
  5. Resources: The training provider should outline the necessary resources, including tools, materials, safety equipment, and any additional support required for successful program delivery.

Proposal Submission: Interested training providers are requested to submit their proposals to the Yukon-Koyukuk School District. Proposals should include the following information:

  • Overview of the proposed Carpentry Skills Training Program, including the program structure and objectives.
  • Qualifications and experience of the training provider and instructors, including certifications or relevant credentials in carpentry or construction.
  • Cost per student based on a participant range of 10 to 16 students, including all necessary training materials, tools, and project supplies.
  • Any additional relevant information or supporting materials.
