Job Training for Kingston inner-city youths

The executive director of Operation Friendship Dr Webster Edwards has announced that Operation Friendship has embarked on a programme aimed at job training for unattached young persons from the Kingston inner-city areas in Jamaica.

Responding to the question as to why this intervention has become necessary at this time. Dr Edwards pointed to Jamaican Antropologist Dr Don Robotham, who is quoted in the Gleaner newspaper of January 10, 2012 as indicating that, " in the 15-19 age group, 90 percent or some 220,000 young Jamaicans are neither in schools or have jobs, and that these young persons provide Jamaica 's army of recruits for antisocial behavior or crime ". This means that there is presently a very large pool of unavailable human capital.
