Connecting Youth with Education and Employment
Students at the VTC learn skills related to computer technology or dressmaking, but that’s only part of the solution. The program ensures that graduates possess the interpersonal skills, confidence, and critical thinking they need to earn a living and successfully manage their independence.
Educators teach young people how to communicate and negotiate, how to stay safe, the importance of education, prevention of gender-based violence, and how to be leaders in their communities. Additionally, PCI helps students secure interviews and apprenticeships and brings potential employers to speak to individuals and classes. This program has helped hundreds of participants secure apprenticeships and jobs.
These young people deserve a chance to create healthy and productive lives for themselves. PCI’s vocational training program helps vulnerable youth break out of their circumstances, surpass societal barriers, and set themselves on the path to a brighter future.
