One hundred and forty-one students from the south-eastern community of Mayaro were given a jump start through online training workshops sponsored by BP Trinidad and Tobago during the month of August.
Through collaborations with Business Clinic Limited and tertiary students from bpTT’s own Brighter Prospects scholarship programme, the energy company supported the delivery of two transformative online learning vacation camps that have given students an edge in the new school term.
BPTT Communications and advocacy manager, Ryan Chaitram, explained the benefits of the online training, “we have always made substantial investments in young people, especially in the area of education.
Business Clinic Ltd. facilitated a three-week workshop entitled ‘Raising a Chief Executive Officer’ that was delivered under its Life skills, Entrepreneurship And Problem solving banner.
As the only full-service business consultancy to work with ages 10 and up, this represents a continuity of Business Clinic’s collaboration with bpTT, having delivered aLEAP camp at the bpTT Mayaro Resource Centre in 2019.
The ‘Raising a CEO’ workshop gave an expansive and immersive experience to 25 secondary students ranging from Form One to Four.
As a virtual camp, it used digital tools to engage participants and teach the fundamentals of turning an idea into a successful venture.
