Scores of young people flocked the Hillsborough tennis court last week Friday to avail themselves of an opportunity to be trained under the Imani programme.

The following day the same enthusiasm was demonstrated by the youths on the sister isle of Petite Martinique. Addressing the youths were Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs – Hon. Elvin Nimrod, Minister for Youth and Sports – Hon. Emmalin Pierre, Senator Sheldon Scott and Senator Jester Emmons. They all gave the attentive job seekers a total overview and outline of the programme and what is required of them.

Following the ceremony, the young people were busy filling out their forms and submitting the other required documents to complete the application process. Several of the applicants pointed out that they welcome the opportunity to fit themselves for the job market. They were in high praise to Government for such a programme. The applicants will now be involved in an interview process following which the successful ones would find positions at various business houses across the sister isles. Both Ministers expressed satisfaction at the positive response to the programme and are thrilled that the February 19th 2013 victory puts them in a position to make a positive difference in the lives of so many young persons.
