The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) has been sponsoring Police Youth Clubs (PYCs) since 2013 as the company sees the activities which are offered through these PYCs as a mean of exposing youth to various positive avenues for self-expression and development. In this vein, members of five NGC-sponsored PYCs belonging to La Brea, Penal, Couva, Laventille Road and Mayaro will commence training in two areas, Digital Literacy and Life Skills on September 26th 2020. The training will be delivered in partnership with the Youth Training and Employment Partnership Programme (YTEPP) which will tailor a special programme for NGC’s sponsored PYCs.
Digital Literacy will cover the basics of Computer Fundamentals & Windows 10 as well as Introductions to Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint with corresponding assignments. Life Skills will incorporate learnings for Understanding Self, Communication, Leadership, Financial Planning and Entrepreneurship. Training sessions such as these will assist young persons in development of skills which will go a long way in creating well rounded individuals.
