Minister Minors To Host Job Corp Meeting

October 18, 2012

The Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Patrice Minors advised today that there will be a mid-day public meeting on Friday [Oct 19] to discuss the Job Corps Programme. The meeting takes place at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, from 12.15pm – 1.45pm.

According to Minister Minors, the Job Corps Programme is an initiative featured heavily in Government’s overall employment and training goals of the One Stop Career Centre.

The Job Corps initiative is a free voluntary programme that provides education and training to vulnerable young people aged 16 to 24. It helps them establish a career, earn a high school diploma or GED and find and keep a job.

Minister Minors said: “It’s about providing hope through establishing strategic partnerships with our business community and with educational institutions. The Job Corp programme is a joint effort that will provide our youth with a seamless service referral process and reciprocal services that will achieve greater career readiness and employment opportunities.

“I am very excited about the potential that this programme has for our young people and I am even more excited about the level of enthusiasm and support that we have received from our partners in the public and private sectors.”

The programme components will include:

  • Outreach and Enrollment
  • Academics
  • Career Technical Training; and
  • Business Partnerships and Placement Services
