President of the National Youth Council, Senator Jahisiah Benoit, is thanking the DLP Government for facilitating temporary employment through the National Employment Program.
Benoit said “Prior to 2013, the work of the council was conducted pretty much on a day to day basis by one administrative coordinator. I’m sure you will agree that in the 21st century and with such a large youthful population, that’s not enough manpower and human resources to handle the affairs of the National Youth Council. Thankfully, in 2013 with the introduction of the NEP, we saw two additional members of staff, that is to say two project officers were engaged with the NYC and the output of these officers really left a mark and demonstrated that we in fact needed these human resources; but more importantly that we had the capacity to manage them and make sure that they produce results,”
He continued “Thankfully with the support that we will be receiving from the NEP, we will now be able to allocate more of our resources to empowerment of our district youth councils. The executive has already taken a decision that at the next subvention, we will be targeting our South-Eastern district council, to provide them with the sum of $3,000, to implement their work plan.”
Benoit was speaking at the 11th Annual National Youth Council Award Ceremony at the Dominica State College, on Saturday.
