Region 10 forging ahead with programme on youth unemployment

Renis Morian

Region Ten Regional Chairman, Renis Morian recently unveiled the region’s second annual Work Readiness Program-me which is an initiative geared at providing the relevant training and opening of opportunities for the region’s young people.

In a Region Ten press release, Morian noted that the region continues to battle with youth unemployment and while there has been some success in creating jobs he believes that the Work Readiness Pro-gramme will significantly address the unemployment challenges facing the region.

In responding to the criticism that the programme is only geared for youths in Linden, the regional chairman was dismissive of that view stressing that those in Kwakwani, Ituni and outlying areas will also benefit from the programme as they seek to aggressively open opportunities for economic development for young people through employment…..
