In the summer of 2020, the Yukon Literacy Coalition launched a youth entrepreneurship initiative that supports and offers opportunities and guidance to Yukon youth (12-18 years old) who want to work for themselves and with others. The Yukon Literacy Coalition assists with start-up costs, marketing, budgeting and anything else to help the youth succeed with their project.
The Yukon Literacy Coalition has been working with Letha, a community facilitator in Watson Lake to organize and deliver a sewing program. The program consist of 8 participants who are learning to sew their first jellyroll quilt. All supplies are included as the participants sew and laugh together on Saturday afternoons at the Yukon University campus.
