Annual meeting of DBYC skill trainees held

KURAVILANGAD, Jan 16: A two-day residential training cum evaluation meet of the skill trainees placed by Don Bosco Youth Centre (DBYC), Itanagar at various resorts in Kerala and Pondicherry in the hospitality sector was held here in which 43 representative skill trainees from 13 resorts participated.

The programme consisted of expert sessions on adapting to new situations and the cultural milieu of South India and addressing the challenges of migration to new and unfamiliar regions.

Resort-wise meeting of the trainees was also held in which first-hand information of the work and working situation was collected from the trainees.  In a common evaluation session animated by Director, DBYC, the trainees freely shared their views on the various resorts in which they are working and the joys and challenges of the work.

The trainees were asked to avoid any behavior that alienates them from the general public and to adapt to the discipline and restrictions the apparently traditional society of South India places on them. They were also exhorted to avoid any forms of addiction and to take good care of their health through proper sleep pattern and food habits.

On the second day of the meet, Advocate Mons Joseph, former PWD Minister and present local MLA interacted with the trainees and thanked them for the work they are putting in the hospitality sector and thus while earning a living for themselves, enhancing the State exchequer.

The two-day meet ended with a visit to the culturally famous St Mary’s Forane Church, Kuravilangad which has Asia’s largest church bells and a lot of history behind and some of the places of importance of the region. To the delight of the organizers, all the participants expressed great job-satisfaction and appreciated the work-culture and discipline they see in their work places.
