Friday 29, June 2012 – The Office of the National Initiative to Create Employment (NICE) has embarked on a programme which is geared at creating summer jobs for students returning to school in September 2012.
A total of one hundred and ninety (190) job opportunities will be made available for secondary and tertiary level students who wish to be employed as facilitators for a summer programme in their respective communities for 2012.
Organizers of summer camps are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity as it will provide much needed assistance to the respective programmes as it relates to the supervision of participants.
Applicants are to take note of the following guidelines: Funding is to cover the employment of students for a two week period only with camps taking place between the July 23rd and August 17th 2012; participants of the camp are to be between the ages 5 -12 years. The summer programmes must constitute an educational, sports or cultural component, among other activities and make provision for under privilege children.
The aim of the programme is to ensure that the targeted group has an avenue where their youthful energies can be directed into something constructive during their long vacation.
Under this programme NICE will cover the cost of employing the one hundred and ninety (190) facilitators and providing t-shirts for the participating students and co-ordinators in the various communities.
