It Takes 75 to Keep Hope Alive

#Keep Hope Alive

St. Patrick’s Foundation operates two skills training institutions, Christ the Redeemer & St. Margaret’s Human Resource Centres. Christ the Redeemer (CTR) Centre was established in the early 1990s and is a HEART/NTA registered vocational training school located in Seaview Gardens offering Commercial Food Preparation, Cosmetology and Customer Engagement Operations.  

St. Margaret’s Human Resource Centre was originally founded to cater to youths within the Olympic Gardens and Waterhouse communities and its environs. This centre provides remedial training for students and also offers Heart Trust NTA Level 2 Certification courses in Woodwork and Electrical Installation. The students in the remedial programmes are prepared for the Grade Nine Achievement Test (GNAT) with hopes of re-integration into the regular school system.

How will the funds be used?

The attrition rate for the programmes has increased by 15% over the last two years and this is largely attributed to the students’ inability to complete payment of fees as well as afford training materials, transportation and meal costs for the duration of the programme.

The Foundation is embarking on a project to raise a total $7,500 USD and this will allow ten (10) young people from the inner city communities of Seaview Gardens, Riverton Meadows, Olympic Gardens and their environs to receive scholarships that cover the total cost of the training programme (tuition, books, other supplies, lunch and transportation). 

It Takes 75 to Keep Hope Alive will impact the lives of at-risk youth within these communities and offer an opportunity for future employment, entrepreneurship and personal development.
