Agrico Hub in partnership with Jobberman, has organized a week long workshop to deliver a comprehensive soft skills training program.

The training, which is part of the HAPPY (Harnessing Agriculture for Productivity and Prosperity of the Youth) initiative, aims to prepare the youth in the Bono East region for the demands of the modern workforce.

The program, which took place at the Pramaso Lounge in the Techiman South Municipal, covered a wide range of topics, including communication, problem-solving, teamwork, and critical thinking, all of which are essential for success in the job market.

Addressing the gathering, the Chief Executive Officer of Agrico Hub, George Antwi Bosiako, explained that, his outfit which is a business innovation hub, seeks to reduce unemployment in Bono East and for that Ghana hence the need to participate in the HAPPY project by partnering with Jobberman to organized the soft skills training.

“We are more into employment promotions, we have two parts of employment promotion, that is job placement and entrepreneurship support so we have partner with Jobberman.

” Jobberman is currently implementing a program dubbed HAPPY program which is about employment which is mostly related to the agric sector.

” What we try to do is that as part of our participation in the HAPPY project, we invited young people in the Bono East region who are in search of jobs and trained them on soft skills to make their search for jobs easier and its part of an orientation for the HAPPY project so that the youth will get to know about it and how best to participate in it.” He said

George Antwi Bosiako further revealed that, the first training session was well-received by the youth, who he said expressed their enthusiasm for the opportunity to develop their soft skills and learn more about the HAPPY project.

” I believe all those who participated in today’s session have learn something and things are now clear on how to get involve in the HAPPY project as well as other job opportunities in the Bono East region especially in the agric sector.”

The soft skills training program is expected to continue to Friday, 24th May, 2024 with plans to reach even more young people in the Bono East region.
