Minister for Employment Addresses Young People

Government continues to create employment pathways for young people on the island.

Hon. Dr. Colin McIntyre who is Minister for Employment is encouraging young men and women who have a particular interest or knack in any profession to identify themselves to the Government.

“To all young men who recognize there is something they can do, something they’d like to learn, I say approach the Government and the Small Business Support Unit. Discuss your desires with them so we can create various modules to suit your needs.  We will train you, give you a stipend and put you out there to help advance your career.  This is what the Government means when we talk about the next level for Dominica.”

He made the call during a recent interview where he spoke about Governments recent initiative – the Apprenticeship Programme that’s geared toward providing on the job training to trainees.
