The Government is to hold two town hall meetings to give updates on school reform and plans to get more young people into work.

Jason Hayward, the Minister of Economy and Labour, will update on Bermuda’s Youth Employment Strategy on June 23 at St Paul’s AME Centennial Church Hall on Victoria Street, Hamilton.

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, will also give a progress update on signature schools and education reform on June 28 at the Bermuda College in Paget.

Mr Hayward will be joined by Malika Cartwright, the director of the Department of Workforce Development, and Erica Smith, the executive director of the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation.

He said: "The implementation of Bermuda's Youth Employment Strategy is essential to reducing unemployment and facilitating greater opportunities and educational pathways for all young Bermudians between 18 and 26 years old.

“The upcoming town hall is an opportunity for the public to ask questions and gather information on how the Youth Employment Strategy will support our youth in developing the ability to guide and lead our country's path into the future."

Mr Rabain, who will be joined by members of the education reform team, said: "Like our colleagues at Workforce Development, we have a key role to play in nurturing and enabling Bermuda's children and young people, their families and our nation to thrive.

“I encourage everyone interested in education reform to come and hear about the progress made to achieve our bold and ambitious plan.

“You will learn from those involved in the day-to-day work and how the public can get involved."

Both events will be held from 6pm to 7.30pm and will be live-streamed on the Government’s CITV channel and social media platforms.
