PM Announces HOPE Project

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, on Tuesday (March 21), announced the launch of the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) programme during his 2017/18 Budget Debate presentation in Gordon House.

The HOPE initiative aims to provide educational and job opportunities for young persons, aged 19 to 24 years, who are not employed or enrolled in school or any programme of training.

This undertaking will involve skills training through apprenticeship work programmes, personal development and responsibility, and citizenship and volunteerism.
