The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Global Construction and Mechanical Company (GCMC), Nathaniel T. Blama, Sr., said there is a need for career development to be prioritized for young people for the growth and development of Liberia.
Mr. Blama spoke at the first graduation program of the Inter-Mission Vocational Training Center in Boys Town, Lower Margi County, urging the youth to focus on career development that would help in making their lives better.
According to Mr. Blama, vocational training for young people remains cardinal toward impacting the lives of the youths to meet the high quality standard of living conditions.
He said if many youth will progress in Liberia, they must engage into things that transform their lives and prepare them for future challenges.
“We need to begin to invest into youth empowerment as a country. Skills training for Liberian youth must be the concern of the government that would support national development,” he said.
Mr. Blama noted that many youth are currently engaged into some level of training, electricity, mechanics, plumbing, and computers, among others to help them in creating job opportunities.
He further noted that Liberia would be transformed if they refrain from criticism against one another in the country, and must practice the love for one other and their nation Liberia.
