The lives of 25 young men and women in the parish of St David will soon be transformed upon conclusion of a 3-month Life Skills and Direct Skills training scheduled to commence this week.
Fostering level-headed youth, Project FLY spread its wings to residents of St David last Thursday during a ceremony held at the La Sagesse Natural Works, with the success stories from Project FLY held in Rose Hill, St Patrick, Carriacou, Coast Guard, Victoria, and Mount Toute, St George.
The project executed by the Ministry of Youth Rehabilitation and Resilience seeks to offer a second chance to marginalised youth at the community level.
Youth Minister, Kate Lewis addressed the participants, implored on those present to seek out opportunities, and encouraged them never to give up on their goals amidst life’s challenges.
The many success stories from Project FLY held in Rosehill, St Patrick, Carriacou, Coast Guard, Victoria, and Mount Toute, St George, gave rise to the project FLY in St David.
According to the project co-ordinator, Johnny Calliste, the life skills and direct skills component is aimed at providing opportunity for training and employability based on labour market demands.
The Direct Skills component of Project FLY in St David is geared at providing the participants with theoretical and practical skills mainly in General Hospitality and Construction with emphasis on Facility Maintenance.
