Employment (HOPE) Programme to assist with the electronic monitoring of Jamaicans returning to the island

Fifty youngsters have been recruited under the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) Programme to assist with the electronic monitoring of Jamaicans returning to the island, who have been self-quarantined at home.
This was disclosed by Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of National Security, Matthew Samuda, during his address to the Senate on Friday.
He pointed out that these “tech-savvy” HOPE recruits will be supervised by a team from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF).
“They will earn a stipend and be beneficiaries of training modules, especially related to customer service,”  Samuda informed.
Launched in May 2017, the HOPE Programme provides educational and job opportunities for young people.
