The Government, through the National Housing Trust (NHT), is providing $32 million in financial support for phase two of the Youth Upliftment Through Education (YUTE) Build programme.
Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller was one of the signatories on Friday (February 7), to a second Memorandum of Understanding among the NHT, the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, the Ministry of Education, the HEART Trust/NTA, and the Youth Upliftment Through Employment Limited.
The MoU is aimed at building the capacity of 100 young persons under phase II of the programme. It is designed to increase access to employment for young men and women between 18 to 29 years, from inner-city communities, who have a strong interest in the construction industry.
