Youth graduates at the Youth Training Centre in Nasau, Sigatoka were this week reminded that they were a great resource to their families, society and the nation.

This was highlighted by the Ministry of iTaukei Permanent Secretary Naipote Katonitabua at the graduation ceremony of 40 trainees at the Youth Training Centre last Friday where he was chief guest.

“Your selection to attend Nasau was a well-thought one,” said Mr Katonitabua.

“And that is for you to be trained and become a well-equipped and resourced person for your community and ultimately the nation.

“All that you have learnt here in Nasau will become useless if you do not apply it to your everyday lives.”

Mr Katonitabua urged the youths to utilise their new-found skills to look for employment and help contribute towards building their society.

He also reminded youths to be aware of the latest development trends and not to be swayed by its negative influences; as there were many benefits they could embrace and benefit from.

Twenty-eight youths graduated with Carpenter General Class 3 while 12 trainees graduated with Certificates in Basic Agriculture.

“I urge the Agriculture graduates to appreciate the land and go back and learn to use it wisely with the skills learnt from Nasau and earn from it,” said Mr Katonitabua.

“Our ancestors have benefitted and lived from utilising their land, therefore I urge you all to appreciate your natural resources and benefit from them.”

Senior Youth Officer, Nasau Training Centre, Apenai Vatucicila said “I am so proud of these youths’ perseverance and I am also proud to say that they all passed with distinction as recognised by Fiji National University and are returning home with their Carpenter General Class 3.”

He said that a classroom block now stood in Nasau is a testament of their successful training.
