Jairo Gonzalez

Five thousand Belizean youths will learn the skill of online trading. This evening, Minister of Youth Kevin Bernard signed an MOU with Dominican Republic-based Harvest Trading CAP Academy which will provide scholarship opportunities.  At the end of the event, we spoke to the C.E.O. of the Academy and Minister Bernard.

“The purpose of this MOU signing is so that we can impact and teach the young people of Belize. We are giving away five thousand scholarships that all Belizean people will benefit from them. The whole purpose of it is to impact the generations of youth in Belize. Everybody ask us, why Belize? It is because seventy percent of the population of Belize is youth. And, most of the people that are interested in this type of training, in this type of learning, are the youth. So, if we can impact the youth we will impact the generations.”

“What we will do, over the next three four months, because this program will actually start in January. So we will be doing online applications. We are going to send this application out through the Department of Youth Service. We want to ensure that as much person who apply, we are going to be narrowing that list. Of course we are going to be vetting that list. We want to ensure that its people that are genuinely interested in this type of training. Because, what we want is to have an impact. They need to have access to internet. They need to have gadgets to use to be able access the program. But, at the same time the Department of Youth Service will utilize its facilities to be able to have young people who may not have access, to get to one of the facility to conduct the training we are offering.”
