In any developing economy, entrepreneurship is seen as the national asset to be cultivated to propel the development of the country. Thus, entrepreneurship should be motivated and remunerated to the greatest possible extent for the progress of our country’s economy.
The government and the country as a whole seems to need alternative pathways to address the levels of high unemployment and lack of leadership among the young citizenry of this country. While efforts are afoot to help address these issues and Ministers have repeatedly called for an entrepreneurial spirit to be birthed in the land, we believe that some citizens need to be given the opportunity to learn just how beneficial being self-reliant and sufficient can be. Underpinning this concept is the popular adage… ‘Give a man a fish and feed him for a day but teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’. The Y.E.E.S program seeks to propose a system of partnership with the government or NGO to provide training in youth empowerment, entrepreneurship and sustainability for young people through real estate training and development. It is believed that if individuals at a tender age are empowered and trained as professionals, later becoming leaders in their respective fields, greatly contributing to the development of the economy and the country as a whole. Caribbean Association of Real estate professionals in partnership with Fabulous Homes International Institute of Real Estate beginning January 2016, currently provide training stints of twenty weeks duration for batches of young unemployed and underemployed individuals who are interesting in pursuing a career in real estate and other brokerage related fields.
