Video presenters are reputable and experienced professionals from Navigant Consulting Services, VF Inc, Dominica Institute of Customer Service, The Youth Skills Training Unit and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The series of five online training videos was produced by IOM with funding from the IOM Development Fund.
Director of Youth Development John Roach commented on the new tools: “These five videos are another tool that will be made available to young people, especially from disadvantaged backgrounds, to help them connect with the work environment. Advice from these professionals would not normally be available to all young people. “Workplace expectations”, or Ms. Natasha Yeeloy-Labad, on “Customer service culture”! These are just a few examples of the type of support provided by the DYBT hub.
