ExxonMobil, a leading global energy company, has successfully funded a training programme for 25 young men in electrical installation and other life skills sessions. The programme which was organized by Youth Challenge Guyana (YCG), aimed to equip young men with the necessary skills and knowledge to become leaders in electrical installation and exhibit positive behaviour in their personal and professional life.

The training programme lasted for six weeks from April 17 to May 31, during which the participants were taken through both theoretical and practical sessions. The participants were taught the basics of electrical installation, including electrical safety, wiring, and circuitry. They were also introduced to the latest electrical installation technologies and practices.

The programme also exposed them to essential skills that are commonly acquired among young men, those areas of focus were conflict resolution, engaging with law enforcement, basic entrepreneurship, job preparedness and communication, personal finance and budgeting and goal setting and personal development.

These sessions were supported by representatives from the Small Business Bureau (SBB), Institute of Private Enterprise Development (IPED), Attorney-At-Law Mr. Sase Gunraj, Consumer Affairs Commission, Ministry of Public Works’ National Electrical Inspectorate, Andrew’s Electrical, George Phillips Electrical, Sandiford and Associates, West Ruimveldt Wesleyan Church and the Special Miracle Ministries.

The training program was a huge success, with all 25 participants completing the program and receiving their certificates of completion. The participants expressed their gratitude to ExxonMobil for funding the program, which they said has given them the opportunity to acquire valuable skills that will help them secure jobs in the electrical installation industry.

YCG in a statement to the press also expressed its appreciation to ExxonMobil for their support in making the training program a reality. Members from the organization stated that the programme would not have been possible without ExxonMobil’s funding and commitment to empowering young people with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.

ExxonMobil has a long-standing record of supporting education and skills development in the communities where it operates. The company believes that investing in young people is key to building a sustainable future and creating opportunities for economic growth and development.”.
