Raine’s Road to Success
October 11th was International Day of the Girl, which celebrated young women in skilled trades.
At just 17, she is already on the road to success. Raine Prime, pictured above, student at Islands Consolidated School, has always liked cars, but she never thought a mere interest could turn into the career she was looking for.
Her interest was piqued during a presentation at her high school, Islands Consolidated in Freeport, Digby Co., on the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency’s summer youth apprenticeship program, in partnership with the Automotive Sector Council and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The TestDrive initiative provides youth an opportunity to work in a variety of trades in the motive power sector, and helps them build careers for themselves in Nova Scotia.
Raine applied and secured a co-operative education apprenticeship position with Brinton’s Auto Salvage in Smith’s Cove, Digby Co., where she discovered her love of auto body work.
