Residents from the neighbouring communities of Ituni and Aroaima also attended the session, where Dr. Bynoe reiterated that young people need to utilise the Internet and devices such as their Smartphones to research the necessary skills and certification that they need to secure employment and/or to become entrepreneurs.
