Canadian Welding Association
Canadian Welding Association Foundation
Bob Dale Gloves lends a helping hand (or should we say glove) to the CWA Foundation and its Mind over Metal Camps. BDG has been donating welding gloves for students and has been a partner of Mind over Metal since the program's inception in Edmonton in 2014.
Targeted for at-risk youth ages 12-15, Mind over Metal camps are changing the perceptions of youth and their parents about welding and caeers in welding. Hands on learning at these camps are building confidence and self-esteem and giving many youth a reason for continuing on to secondary education. Welding has captured their attention and is giving them a focus for their future. The CWA Foundation aims to bring more welders into the workforce with top skills contributing to enhanced public safety and a rewarding career path.
