The Department of Youth Service’s Youth Enterprise/Job Creation Unit is presently conducting a Job Preparedness Training for twenty five youth between the ages of 17 – 29 years. The main objective of the training is to empower these young people with the necessary skills and knowledge to become marketable to join the work force.

A total number of ten (10) sessions are being conducted. The various topics include: Skills Identification, Work ethics, Conflict Resolution Management in the workplace, how to work along with HIV infected persons in the workplace, Resume writing, Interviewing skills and Mock Interviews. The other component of the training is to continue mentoring these young people and procure placements for them or assist them in returning to school where necessary or engage them into other skill trainings such as those offered at ITVET.

The Department of Youth Services will be hosting its Closing Ceremony to recognize those successful participants of the program. The ceremony will be held on March 4th 2016 commencing at 10:00 a.m. at the Department of Youth Services Headquarters on 55 Regent Street.

The second component of the program will commence shortly. DYS makes an appeal to the various employers to give us a call if they need an employee, we will certainly match their skills to meet your expectations.
