Love Foundation hosted job workshop, this time in the Caribbean Shores area in Belize City. The workshop is a joint collaboration with Area Representative for Caribbean Shores, Kareem Musa. The workshop focuses on teaching participants how to write a resume and conduct themselves in interviews. Participants from the Caribbean Shores constituency were engaged in a one-day workshop on Saturday November 9. According to Musa this initiative should be a model for other area representatives to look at and practice.
Kareem Musa, Area Representative, Caribbean Shores: “I was contacted by Miss Deborah Sewell who is the director in charge of the Love Foundation and Miss Sewell indicated that she wanted to do a partnership with Caribbean Shores so that we can have a one day training for individuals who are looking for a job. Now I have to say that I was enthusiastic about the thought and the prospects of this because it should be every politician’s dream to get 100% of their people employed and so I was very excited at the thought of this and so I wholeheartedly agreed to it and I have to say that I am very impressed by the presentation by Love Foundation. We are very appreciative for the opportunity and I can say 100% that the young people who were involved that they are excited at the thought of one day getting a job after going through this process. Now on Saturday what we had was just the one day training and that will lead up to four weeks of training that will take place with these young people after which they will obtain a certificate and thereafter they will hopefully be placed in a job. It is not limited to just females, I noticed that a lot of females came I think twenty females and one male, now that says a lot of what is taking place in our society. So we as area representatives we have to encourage our young men more that these are initiatives that work, we have to convince them of that and so I can safely say that I will be taking that upon myself to get more and more young men also and equally involved as the females are involved in this initiative.”
Musa noted that this one-day workshop will lead into a series of other sessions planned to take place over the course of 4 weeks.
