Cayman Outreach Association launches a vocational training centre

The Cayman Outreach Association (COA) has found a new way to reach at-risk-youth. The association formerly ran the Extended After School Programme, and have now turned its effort to a new a programme, a vocational training centre.

Carl Cargill, a member of the association, says that through the years, they found up to 30% of the students they were working with did not graduate with enough qualification to go onto higher education. This programme is meant to help those school leavers.

The centre will first focus on fibre optics. It was the right choice for the centre, Mr. Cargill says, because it’s an industry gaining traction in Cayman. Students taking part in the training will get international certification.

To learn more about the programme you can stop by the COA’s office in the McDonald Square Building, call 939-7897, or visit the websites or
