Video: Stephon Paynter 3rd Week At Air Care

August 1, 2016

Stephon Paynter has now enjoyed his third week as a summer student with Air Care – part of a partnership between Air Care and Impact Mentoring Academy, which aims to give young Bermudians a taste of technical training.

The 15-year-old was working at the St. George’s Club helping to install three new air conditioning units, but had done quite a bit of other work as well.

Being the smallest, Stephon was asked to get up into a roof space where he said he hoped he didn’t meet a rat, but he added: “I am getting to see some interesting stuff. There are definitely other students at Impact who could benefit from what I’m doing.”

As well as practical hands-on work, Stephon has been given homework [including some homework on refrigeration], which he has also found very useful.

Brendan Stones, Air Care’s General Manager, said: “It’s obvious that Stephon is making big strides and it’s been great to have him on the team.

“In our industry, in particular, there is a shortage of Bermudians coming through and it is great to see Stephon learning so much during his time with us.”
