An additional 100 YES interns will be added to the government’s current complement, as the government tries to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on the economy.
The St Vincent government will also hire 150 part-time workers to engage in several beautification and maintenance projects nationwide. This was disclosed by the Minister of Finance Hon. Camillo Gonsalves.
Minister of Finance Camilo Gonsalves said it is hoped that the YES interns will gain valuable experience during this period of COVID-related job scarcity, which will better position them for permanent employment in the post-COVID job market.
The Government will also create a Community Improvement Brigade of part-time workers to engage in minor beautification, vector control and maintenance projects in villages nationwide.
The 150 additional part-time workers will be employed in this initiative over the next six months.
