Training of Don Bosco Youth Centre concludes in Itanagar
ITANAGAR: A two-days Training cum Evaluation Meeting of Don Bosco Youth Centre-trained skill trainees already working in various resorts at Kerala was held here in which 43 youth from 8 resorts and hotels took part. Speaking at the occasion as Chief Guest, Dr. Joseph Thadathil, Arch Priest of Catholic Church Kuravilangad thanked the young boys and girls from Arunachal and North East for contributing to the development of tourism sector in Kerala. He also spoke of the importance of Kuravilangad and the happiness he has in meeting the trainees who show to young people the necessity of hard work.
Subu Tabin, Director, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, who was the Special Guest and Resource Person for the training interacted with the participants and spoke at length about the necessity to continue working in a place for a reasonable time as the great challenge of skill training is the necessity to retain the placed youth. He also spoke about the need to up-skill and re-skill oneself.
“I am here to encourage you and to inspire you”, said Tabin and added that those who are skilled need not look for job while the unskilled find it hard to get job in spite of educational qualification as jobs for the unskilled are much less compared to jobs for the skilled.
He also exhorted the trainees to be disciplined, hardworking and honest with work.
Tabin while expressing his happiness for inviting to the training programme, congratulated DBYC for not only training and placing youth in the hospitality sector, but for following up which encourages those placed to retain the job.
Earlier, Fr. Cyriac, Director, DBYC, welcomed all the trainees and the guests to the training programme and emphasized the supreme importance that DBYC gives to individual attention and follow up.
He specially thanked Dr. Joseph Thadathil, Arch Priest of Kuravilangad for making the venue available for the programme and for the encouragement and kind presence.
A special word of thanks was accorded to Director, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship for taking the trouble to attend the programme, which in turn will encourage the participants to retain their jobs.
Meena Tsunkurang, one of the trainees, while thanking the organizers and the guests, expressed her gratitude to DBYC and to everyone who helped her get a job in Kerala at the beginning in food and beverage service and through hard work of two years getting placement at a five star beach hotel as guest relations executive and earning as much as twenty thousand rupees in addition to free food and accommodation.
She called upon her fellow trainees to put up with difficulties with determination and go ahead to better placement and payment in the days to come.
