On Tuesday, May 02nd 2017, the Department of Youth and Culture, and the Management Advisory Board (MAB) of the Job Link Up Programme, hosted the first Personal Development Session for clients on the Job Link Up Programme at the Teachers’ Resource Centre.

The Personal Development Session was chaired by Ms. Lauraine Gumbs, chairperson of the Job Link Up programme MAB. The session covered the following topics:
• Maintaining Personal safety and hygiene in the Workplace – facilitated by Mrs. Dana Ruan, School Nurse.
• The negative and sociological effects of drugs and substance abuse – facilitated by Officers Lake, Sylvester and Herbert from the DARE programme.
The sessions were informative and interactive with the clients having the opportunity to ask questions or make comments at the end of each presentation.

We are grateful for the kind assistance of Mr. Willis Hodge, from Tropical Distributors, who donated care packages to the programme. These were presented to the clients at the end of the session.
