Minister of Youth and Community Empowerment Adrian Forde says the Ministry will be rolling out a suite of programmes geared towards addressing the needs of the country’s youth.
Addressing the Barbados Labour Party’s 1st Anniversary Political Rally at Carlisle Car Park, Bridgetown, on Sunday, Forde said the Talk Youth Talk programme will seek to get the youths involved in the development of the country.
Forde said the programme will be launched in St Lucy.
“We are going to take it in every nook and cranny in Barbados,” Forde said. “That is what serious Government is about.”
“We are not talking down to them. We are setting up an avenue where young people can express their concerns,” he added.
Forde also announced that his Ministry would soon be launching the Next Step Training Initiative and the Building Blocks Programme.
“A lot of things that were not done, we are here to correct and we have a lot of corrective work to do,” he said.
