Additionally, this virtual town hall will enable the youth team to share pertinent information about our Summer Youth Work Experience program, Work, Learn, and Earn program, recently launched Work Readiness Initiative with the Department of Human Services, and our future plans. VI Department of Labor Commissioner, Gary Molloy, stated “Sharing this information to our community about our Workforce Development Opportunities available, specifically to our young people in the first step in turning the direction of our economic focus to holistically make strides towards the resurgence of a skilled world-class workforce.” In addition to the discussions, the initiative will feature live performances from local and international guest artist such as Tia, Adam O, and Pressure.
WHO: Youth and Apprenticeship Workforce Development Stakeholders
WHAT: Live Virtual Town Hall
WHEN: 6:00 PM, April 7, 2021
WHERE: @USVIDOL Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/USVIDOL
Participants will be able to join a live broadcast on Facebook to ask questions that receive responses from the Virgin Islands Department of Labor Youth and Apprenticeship Team.
This virtual forum is the first of many to address the needs of our community from a subject matter focus to a potentially broader conversation highlighting the Department’s ability to be the connection between resources especially the most important resource, the human resource. The lack of in-person activities and the rise in delinquencies in the territory, has given our Youth Team the opportunity to be creative to share information and capture the attention of those served by the VIDOL.
To submit a question or for more information, please contact the Department of Labor at (340) 773-1994 etx. 2202 or via email at [email protected].
