The 27 youths who graduated from the Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited’s Youth Link Apprenticeship programme on Thursday were encouraged to build character and aspire for mastery in their careers.
In a ceremony held at the Pegasus Hotel, the graduates benefited from a motivational talk from Dr Marlon Hestwick, who told them that while skills and competencies will open doors for them, it is their character that will keep them in those places.
“Character fetches qualifications. Character is your responsibility. Character that fails once can make a mess of a career that took years to build,” Hestick told the trainees.
