IAC embarks on career guidance outreach for youths


[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Indian Action (formerly Arrival) Committee (IAC) has for the first time, embarked on a Career Guidance and Seminar Work Shop which will seek to provide youths who are uncertain of what career/profession to follow, with the tools and guidance needed to make an inform decision on what career best suits them.

A release from the IAC stated that, “Three Work Shops will be held. The First one is set for August 15th 2015 at the Essequibo State House Board Room, followed by August 22, 2015 at Bath Settlement and the final one on August 29th 2015 in Albion, Berbice.”

These start at 10:00 hrs each day and target participants are between the ages of 16- 20. The IAC says it is cognizant that the Caribbean Secondary Education Examinations has recently concluded and as such, a new batch of persons will be either entering the world of work or tertiary education and require some level of guidance.

“It is evident that whilst most of these individuals will be following the norms of society, which is, after exams to find a job or progress towards their Tertiary Education, a majority are still undecided and would therefore, not seize the opportunity to acquire any form of tertiary education that will help to enhance and promote the level of experience in the various educational fields.

The main aim of the Seminar/Work Shop is to encourage the young people whom are the faces of the nation to pursue higher education as early as possible and to help them to identify the ideal profession that best commensurate with their interest, personality and capabilities,” the release added.

Young people desirous of participating are asked to make contact with the IAC Head Office at telephone # 2235161 or email: [email protected].



  1. Very good initiative. Work needs to be done for youths who did not do well at the exams or might have dropped out of school. There should be a major push to teach them a trade skill, get them involved in agriculture and other fields that don’t require a high school education. And focus on alcoholism, suicide, domestic violence, drug abuse etc.

    But good work by IAC.
