By Aaron Humes: 520 youths filled the St. John’s College Gymnasium this morning for a joint graduation ceremony hosted by the Ministries of Youth, Sports and Transport and Home Affairs and New Growth Industries.
They participated in the last few months in various training and certification courses initiated by the Youth Services Department aimed to increase the knowledge of young people, enhancing their employment opportunities, success in entrepreneurship and decision-making in their daily lives. Furthermore, these courses will positively impact the development of skills and grow interest among young persons, providing a more robust understanding of their potential, which can lead to more opportunities.
Two courses were in collaboration with the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries, through the Leadership Intervention Unit. Hosted under the theme, “Schooling for At-Risk Youths,” the programs focused on enrolling at-risk youths in education activities to provide academic enhancement in areas such as Basic Math, English and Financial Literacy.
Other course offerings included Customer Service, Graphic Design, and other youth developmental courses in the National Youth Training Institute, based on the recently conducted 2022 Youth Needs Assessment Survey.
The DYS and the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries say they will continue to collaborate to employ strategies that will engage youths in capacity-building programs to help them acquire the skills needed to achieve their fullest potential to become productive and responsible citizens of Belize.
