The Caribbean Development Bank in collaboration with the Ministry of National Mobilization Et al., avidly begins its Youth Business Training skills today, for a one-month period.
This training would enlighten one hundred and ninety youths across the green zone in Saint Vincent. Ranging from South Central Windward to Central Leeward.
Some of the topics that are expected to be covered in the daily workshops include, but are not limited to:
- Business Management
- Financial Management
- Creating a business plan
The main objective of the training is to empower the youths to become self-dependable, find purposeful engagement and gain life skills for the future. Specifically, Business skills are important because they are the fundamental component of starting, operating and managing a successful organization, whether it be your own or that of another organization.
The Programme would actually span for three months with the month of September being designated for Farm Skills Internship and October for Youth Life Skills. Participants would receive $XCD200.00 each month for three months as a transportation allowance to ease the burden of travel to the designated venues.
We are urging participants to attend the programme consistently and punctually. Learn as much as possible, ask questions for clarity so that the comprehensive certificate obtained at the end of the programme can be a true representation of your time spent here.
