MYDNS to train over 400 young entrepreneurs via Project Trending

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago, through the Ministry of Youth Development and National Service, has launched the Project Trending Programme.

The initiative was launched recently at the Radisson Hotel.

Project Trending will train 400 young entrepreneurs between the ages of eighteen (18) to thirty-five (35) years on the importance of social media management, sales strategies, innovative marketing tactics, business growth, and effective online marketing strategies.

This initiative reflects our commitment to integrating youth into the economy, ensuring they shape the digital future. By embracing technology and fostering inclusivity, we aim to equip our youth with the tools to succeed locally, regionally, and internationally.

It’s a platform that propels innovation, creativity, and economic equity among our youth. It is not just about teaching marketing; it is about shaping the future of commerce in Trinidad and Tobago. Let’s embark on this journey together, creating a vibrant and prosperous future for Trinidad and Tobago. Thank you, and may success follow each of you!

Also delivering remarks at the Launch was Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister – Communications, Symon De Nobriga, Permanent Secretary of MYDNS, Mr. Narine Charran, and Chief Executive Officer at the CTS College of Business and Computer Science Ltd, Mr. Suruj Ragoonath, who shared that CTS College intends to continue to work hand-in-hand with the MYDNS to deliver valuable knowledge and skills that will be pivotal in maximizing business success and growth. Our commitment is to empower our young entrepreneurs not just to navigate but to shape the digital future.

They are not just the future, but the present of our nation’s economic growth, and therefore our aim is to ensure that no youth is left behind as the world progresses.

The focus is clear: empowering young business owners, regardless of gender, race, or upbringing, to expand their digital footprint, ignite economic creativity, and turn challenges into opportunities.
