Unemployed youth receive free market training

A local Public Relations Agency has started rolling out a series of free training workshops for unemployed youth in the Katutura area of Windhoek. The workshops are part of the agency’s efforts to tangibly assist unemployed youth in their quest to making their first steps towards finding a job or starting their own business endeavours. During the past week and as part of this programme, USI HOEBEB COMMUNICATIONS (UHC), assisted the youth in developing and updating their Curriculum Vitaes, ensuring that they include all relevant information which may be required by a potential employer and making their CVs more presentable. This was followed by a training workshop on Saturday, 17 August 2019. Communications Strategist and trainer Usi //Hoebeb, who has over 25 years experience in the communications and PR industry says that the youth are faced with immense challenges in their lives. “Teenage pregnancies; drugs and alcohol abuse amongst youth; school drop outs and other such challenges are symptoms and consequences of bigger problems such as joblessness and therefore poverty amongst our communities. We cannot merely stand by and watch the very communities in which we grew up, degenerate into a state of hopelessness,” //Hoebeb says.
