This is according to Police Commander Stephen Mansell who told INews today that these ventures are aimed at targeting early school leavers who will be gainfully occupied and granting opportunities where they can learn different skills that would prepare them for the world of work.

He explained that presently a large number of young people who have been pursuing a one-year diploma at the $427.5M Leonora Technical Skills & Vocational Training Centre, West Coast Demerara (WCD), are scheduled to graduate in July.

Further the youths in his Division will benefit tremendously from information technology (computer) training sessions, cooking programmes as well as outdoor sporting activities, Mansell said.

“We are forming football clubs and one will be formed at Crane village and there is even martial arts being taught at Vreed-en-hoop, La Grange, Wales and elsewhere…our objective is to get as much youths involved as possible so they can learn a number of things which will contribute to the work force…there are a lot of jobs out there and we in our Division are working to make our youths skilled so they can contribute to the work force,” the “D” Division Commander noted.

INews was also told that there is already a Girl Guides Group ‘up and running’ at La Grange, West Bank Demerara (WBD) and very soon the police will be launching one at Den Amstel, WCD.

Meanwhile, another football club is expected to be formed in Crane, WCD, where dozens of youths stand to benefit from football training.

According to Mansell, retired national football coach Earl O’Neil will be assisting the youths on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 16:00 hrs to 17:30 hrs.

His Division is also preparing to host football and martial arts competitions between the youths of varying communities in the near future so as to also allow them to have “clean, competitive” skills.
