“Uetshu”, which means “instill skills”, “make it easy” or “know by experience” in the Innu language, was created by the Conseil des Innus de Pessamit and the MUWBR. This three-year project conducted at the Uapishka Station is a socio-professional integration program for young Innu. Ultimately, the project will have given 12 Pessamit community youth the opportunity to develop their talents and skills needed to fully enter the job market of today and tomorrow. In addition to its mission as a research station and traditional Innu land occupancy camp, the Uapishka Station creates employment and serves as a springboard to the workplace for community youth.
