Director of the Barbados Youth Advance Corps Hally Haynes wants a greater emphasis on preparing young persons with the tools necessary to function in the new digital age. Haynes spoke Saturday at the Barbados YouthADVANCE Corps’ Graduation Ceremony held at Wildey Gymnasium for Cohorts 1 and 2 intakes of trainees.

Haynes said that though this year’s Cohorts were successful with a graduation rate of 90 percent, one of the key lessons learned for the organization over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic was the need to ensure competence in the online learning environment.

“A total of 334 young people from Cohorts 1 and 2, comprising 202 males and 132 females, have successfully completed the BYAC two-year development training program, notwithstanding the challenges occasioned by the COVID 19 pandemic. This represents a completion rate of 90 percent, this is indeed laudable given the challenges we experienced.
