Gov't To Expand HOPE Programme
Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the Government is to expand the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) Programme, in partnership with the private sector.
Launched in May 2017, the HOPE Programme provides educational and job opportunities for young people. The initiative is targeted at persons aged 18 to 24 who are not employed or enrolled in a school or training programme.
So far, more than 20,000 persons have been trained through the HOPE Programme.
