AWARD FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT


The Jetwing Youth Development Project (JYDP) of Jetwing Yala was conferred the Best Sustainability Project Award, as part of the Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Awards 2014. JYDP empowers underprivileged rural youth, who cannot afford higher education, and provides training for employment within Jetwing Hotels and elsewhere in the hospitality trade. Jetwing Yala was home to the seventh programme under the JYDP initiative, and provided training for youth from the villages of Kirinda, Kataragama, Tissamaharama and Hambantota. The eight-month programme was held in collaboration with Kavantissa Vocational Training Centre (KVTC), CARE International Sri Lanka and World University Service of Canada (WUSC).
