Sophia Training Centre youths attract buyers at small expo

─ youths showcase their talent at cultural exhibition and expo

─ gain knowledge and skills provided, and break barriers by equipping yourselves in non-traditional vocational and technical skills – Min. Norton urges youths

As part of the 2019 National Youth Week activities, young people attached to the Sophia Training Centre (STC) hosted a small cultural exhibition and expo to showcase their work, while attracting potential buyers.

Minister of Social Cohesion, Dr. George Norton commended the students for their efforts in organising the cultural exhibition and expo. This, he said, demonstrates their seriousness about self and community development.

“It goes without saying that as youths, your role is critical to national development, and the investments you make today will have a direct impact on what your lives will be like tomorrow,” the minister said.

The event, Minister Norton noted, is a clear indication of how efficiently and effectively the centre functions, as it is the longest standing entity geared to evoke youth development in Guyana.

“I must congratulate the staff for your role in positively impacting the lives of these young people. I am sure that you will all be remembered as heroes in their success stories.”

The minister also urged the students to gain all of the knowledge and skills provided and to break barriers by equipping themselves in non-traditional vocational and technical skills.

The centre has been functioning for 43 years, helping to equip the nation’s youth with the necessary skills and knowledge to lead productive lives.
