YOUTH IN ACTION: Approximately $57 million has been set aside to finance this year's National Youth Service (NYS) summer programme, which will employ some 3,700 young Jamaicans (ages 17-24) in the private and public sectors. Of that number, ten percent are disabled youths. Almost 9,000 persons applied for the three-week jobs, which come with a stipend of $12,000. "This government is committed to making sure that with whatever resources that we have, we are focussed on youth development," says Youth Minister Lisa Hanna, who adds that over 11, 500 participants will be targeted this year for various projects islandwide, including some new ones to be rolled out by the NYS. Greater emphasis, Hanna says, will be placed on the promotion of cultural and social entrepreneurship.
