Date Published: 
Friday, March 8, 2013

Interested persons between the ages of 17 and 25 are invited to apply for employment internship assignment through the PRP III programme.

The PRP III was established to support the Government’s Community Renewal Programme (CRP) which is slated to provide assistance in several of the country’s poorest communities across the island. The project seeks to achieve: 

  1. Transformation and Development in the eligible communities
  2. Social Inclusion: Community Empowerment, Involvement and Participation
  3. The engendering of an environment that is violence free, fostering economic viability

To apply you must

  • Be a resident of one of the listed communities (see below)
  • Be in financial need
  • Be actively involved in community work through community-based organization/s and/or other voluntary programmes
  • Not be presently working full time or in school full time - Awardees will be assigned full-time to the host organization and therefore cannot be enrolled in school or work elsewhere in such a manner as to require time-off from the host organization.
