MYPART Cadets Visit Tobago House of Assembly Chief Secretary

"You can be the proof that the people were wrong," Tobago House of Assembly Chief Secretary Orville London told a group of Military Led Youth Programme of Apprenticeship and Reorientation Training (MYPART) Cadets who visited him on Monday 11 May, 2011. Noting that the programme had turned out to be excellent although there was much scepticism from even high-ranking individuals just before it started, he made a call for young at-risk Tobagonian men to get on board.

He said he was particularly interested in the programme because it was taking Trinidad and Tobago into another dimension. A MYPART cadet from Mayaro said he felt that he had changed for the better. "I came into the programme to change. My family and friends do not see the same person that used to smoke on the block and do a lot of stupid things," he explained.

Their tutor, Sgt. Marlon Adams, who spoke to the media after the visit believed that the MYPART programme presented an entirely new culture to young people. "It is one of complete change that promotes discipline - a thing we often see lacking in today's society," he argued. Training takes place at the Old Mausica Teachers' Training College compound, but he added that there are plans to establish a centre in Tobago.

The programme, which began in 2007, was the brain child of former prime minister Patrick Manning. It is a three year programme which offers some military training and technical and vocational instruction and certification for youths 15 - 20 years old. Students must participate in military training, but are free to choose a concentration in the technical-vocational field. There are two intakes per year.

MYPART targets at-risk youth and aims to make Cadets certified, confident model citizens epitomising the values of respect, personal responsibility and leadership, and contributing positively to nation building. Persons interested in applying to the MYPART Programme can access application forms from the Tobago Regional Office of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in Mt St George.
