Youth at Work Interns at Mambo Juice
THE Proposed youth market set for November 26th – 30th hopes to encourage young people to create jobs for themselves by starting their own small businesses.
Youth at Work is in part running and organizing the whole market but it is also supported by other individuals who are volunteering their time to organize this inaugural event.
The Youth Market is being funded by Youth at Work, which is funded by the Pacific Leadership Program.
“So far we have SIPPA and Transparency who will be doing stalls.
“The market is in part being organized by Youth at Work which is managed by SPC and also prizes have been donated by Pro 31 and Rebelle Inc.
“Youth unemployment is a tremendous issue that affects every Solomon Islander in some way or another,” Youth at Work program manager, Sandra Bartlett said.
“Once a youth is Economically Empowered they can start to think about other issues that face them in life.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment and Stalls applications have been issued for interested groups or organizations.
Audition Time for entertainments will be on November 8th and 9th at the Art Gallery.
Bands are to perform an acoustic version of their youth empowerment song for judges to place them in the Youth Market entertainment lineup..
