Charlestown, St Kitts and Nevis: The Department of Youth – Nevis announced that the children of the Nevis had fun at the Summer Job Attachment Program, organised, hosted and managed by the Department.

The Youth Department mentioned, “The staff and several interns of the Summer Job Attachment Program visited the Nevis Water Depot for practical training in vehicle mechanics.”

Specifically, we learnt about the process of servicing a vehicle. We learnt to:

a.) Change a tire
b.) Inspect, remove, and install brake pads
c.) Change engine oil
d.) Clean the engine
e.) Replace filter
f.) Wash and vacuum a vehicle
g.) Check lights

“Our intern attached to the Nevis Water Depot, Kail Dowe and supervisor, Kenneth Powell, was patient with us,” it additionally informed the general public while concluding the message regarding the event.

According to the Department, the primary objective of this event’s exercise was to increase young people’s knowledge, especially females, in basic car maintenance and repairs.

It emphasised, “We wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Team at the Nevis Water Depot for accommodating us! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

It is worth noting that the Department of Youth has always focused on ‘Youth Engagement’. Earlier, it outlined that the Department of Youth responded to an invitation to host weekly sessions with the youth of the Combermere Methodist Church Youth Group.

It furthermore mentioned that the topics in focus included self-love, peer pressure, personal hygiene, sex, sexuality and drug use and misuse. The atmosphere was inviting and facilitated openness and frankness. The sessions commenced on June 23rd and ended on August 5th with a celebration at The Runaway Grill.

It has been a rewarding experience partnering with the Combermere Methodist Youth Group. “We will be back for Part Two!” it stated.
