The Gregory Park Primary School was abuzz with activity on March 9, with NCYD Youth Empowerment Officers for St. Catherine - Simone Green and Gihon Mitchell, providing support to the hosting of the Portmore Youth Fair. 

The NCYD Booth was a focal point of the activities at the Portmore Youth Fair, as the YEOs provided information to the over 500 youth in attendance on opportunities for personal and career development. 

Young persons were assisted in the acquisition of TRN cards and birth certificates, in addition to completion of application forms for the NYS Summer Employment Programme and the Diageo Learning for Life Programme.  

Ms. Green noted that she was pleased with the interest that the young persons had in the work of the NCYD and the Portmore Youth Information Centre. 

Senior Programme Development Specialist in the NCYD, Miguel Williams, was also present to deliver motivational messages to the young people in attendance.
