K1 Britannia Foundation announced two new apprenticeship programs to help secure jobs for Island youths.
Following Irma, it has been a challenge to secure jobs for our youths. There are relatively few jobs currently available on the island. The biggest job markets for youth are in construction and repairing of boats. To help address these needs, we have set up two apprenticeship programs.
