By BBN Staff: The Department of Youth Services has partnered with CARICOM to host a series of training for youth and deportees by using Creativity for Employment and Business Opportunity (CEBO).
This is a tool to engage, inspire, and create entrepreneurial interest and action among young CARICOM nationals (15-29) from all walks of life, as a means of countering youth unemployment, mitigating drug abuse, crime and violence and fostering economic resilience.
CEBO involves the delivery of an intensive five-day Training of Trainers workshop (ToT), intended to equip 15 participants with the necessary skills to engage, motivate and transfer knowledge to a wide cross section of youth in interactive, practical, youth-friendly and fun ways.
It will also involve the delivery of a Business Lab Workshop for 30 deportees as well as for 30 unattached youth to introduce them to the fundamentals of starting a business.
The first set of training will begin during the week of September 30, 2019 at the Department of Youth Services’ main office on 55 Regent Street, Belize City.
Allison Brown-Mckenzie, Director of Department of Youth Services, states that “our young people have the talent and capacity to become great innovators” and this training is expected to guide many young Belizeans towards entrepreneurship while countering youth unemployment.
