St. Maarten – Minister of Economic & Tourism Affairs, Telecommunications & Transport Franklin Meyers encourages young adults to sign-up for the Youth Entrepreneurship Training programme that further develops the skills of unemployed young people between 16-28. The training is free and open to early high school leavers and single parents. The only course that still has open spaces is the sewing class. The website design and baking classes are already full.

The project is collaboration between the Small Business Development Foundation (SBDF) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs “Get off the block, Get on the bus, Get busy” programme. Registration for the courses can take place at the SBDF office which is near Afoo Supermarket in Philipsburg and in the vicinity of the Philipsburg Jubilee Library and Sundial School, tel. 543-0777 or the cabinet of the minister of education, culture, youth and sports tel. 586-2780.

“This programme is about creating the opportunity for single parents and those that didn’t complete their high school, to gain and improve skills that would increase employability of these young adults within the St. Maarten economy,” Meyers said on Wednesday.
