(PRESS RELEASE) – As we endeavor towards fulfilling the vision of our mission statement which states, “To be the catalyst for the advancement and development of young workers through advocacy, empowerment and equal opportunity.”
The National Workers Union Youth Council has deemed it necessary to nurture the nations’ crops being cultivated to become products of society. These are secondary and college students who are drawing nearer towards the tunnel of the working world.
In its recent update the department of statistics reported the nation’s rate of youth unemployment to be 39.6%. This fluctuating rate has and continues to be disturbing, as no one explanation has over the years justified its existence. Rather, many traditional solutions which have for some time not been revised.
As a result the NWUYC has strategically introduced a district phased series of workshops entitled ‘Talk With Schools’. This workshop; aims towards providing students with the opportunity to participate in an introductory discussion which will assist them in becoming:
*fully equipped for the world of work and also,
*gaining more knowledge as it relates to the rights that exist for workers.
The first phase of the workshop takes place on the 10th and 13th October, 2017 where we will visit the following schools;
Tuesday 10th October, 2017
– Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School (9-10am)
– Piaye Secondary School. (11-12pm)
Friday 13th October, 2017
– Bean Field Secondary School (9:30-10:30am)
– Vieux Fort Comprehensive (11-12pm)
We look forward to building comradery with every school across the nation through participation.
