These rates must be reduced and if possible, eliminated ….Youth unemployment, as at December 2017, stood at 22.9 per cent. One in every three young persons, between the ages of 15 and 24, is not in education, employment, or in training (NEET).

The energy of young people is evident everywhere. Their enthusiasm and exuberance cannot be restrained or repressed. The Corps will amplify their talents and expand the opportunities for self-actualisation,” the Head of State said.Meanwhile, Social Cohesion Minister, Dr George Norton, during his brief remarks, reiterated that the Youth Corps was geared at enhancing the lives of young Guyanese and showed Government’s commitment to strengthening the country’s youthful population.President David Granger (centre) and Government Ministers pose for a picture with students of the Kuru Kuru Training Centre“As we launch the Guyana Youth Corps, a comprehensive initiative geared at enhancing the lives of young Guyanese by encouraging them to take charge of their future throughout the length and breadth of Guyana. Since taking office in 2015, your government had strengthened and pioneered to educate and empower you, the youths of this country,” Dr George said.The Guyana Youth Corps was first established on January 1, 1968 as a means of solving the youth unemployment problem. It operated for seven years, during which time, approximately 1200 youths benefited from the programme. The Youth Corps was then absorbed by the National Service on January 1, 1975, which itself was dismantled in 2000.Under the new programme, youths will be trained for one year. The levels of training will include apprenticeship, traineeship and internship, and the programme will span all 10 Administrative Regions. However, the main office and campus will be at the Kuru Kuru Training Centre.The auspicious event was commemorated by the unveiling of a plaque and was graced by the presence of Government Ministers, including Education Minister Nicolette Henry, Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock, and Social Cohesion Minister, Dr George Norton among others.last_img read more

Allardyce: Lack of firepower is QPR’s main problem

first_imgWest Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes QPRs lack of firepower is the main reason for their poor start to life back in the Premier League.Harry Redknapp’s side are bottom of the table and their 2-0 defeat against the Hammers on Sunday means they have lost all of their away matches so far this season, scoring only one goal in the process.“For Harry, like for us all, it’s about how threatening you are in terms of goal threat,” said Allardyce.“If you’re struggling to do that then the rest of the team comes under that much pressure it ultimately cracks. We’ve suffered that ourselves in the past.“What did they have? One attempt when Charlie Austin did brilliantly to get away from James Tomkins and a couple of shots.“When you haven’t got a real goalscorer in the team it makes such a difference. Our goal threat is greater whereas I think QPR are lacking a real goal threat at the moment and that makes life difficult.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
