Hundreds graduate from skills training courses

Hundreds of young people have graduated from a variety of skills training courses designed to prepare them for the world of work.

Participants of the ‘Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme’, ‘Endless Possibilities’ programme, ‘Youth Mainstreaming Programme’, and ‘Barbados Youth Service’, gathered with their tutors to receive certificates and trophies of outstanding participation at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex Gymnasium last evening.

Youth Minister Stephen Lashley advised them to go “make a difference”, as they have an important role to play in the island’s development.

“The challenge is in order for the Barbados economy to grow…we have to redouble our efforts within that vital sector of small business and entrepreneurship.

“It means that those young people in this audience who are graduating, particularly from the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme  have got to make a difference in terms of their business focus, and the areas of activity of a productive nature that they pursue relentlessly after they leave this particular facility this evening,” Lashley said.

    Do not just give them the skills and leave them idle. I hope the forces that be help them put these skills into action with employment. Congratulations to them for walking the path less trod.
