What is the "YCDI Change Agents" programme
The Youth Can Do I.T. (YCDI) Change Agents programme is a youth empowerment initiative that seeks to employ, empower, and elevate young people across Jamaica and the Caribbean region. Through this programme, young adults who have an interest in convening, creating, coordinating and teaching digital skills will work on time bound projects, be assigned to a mentor and have the opportunity to attend personal and professional development sessions. YCDI change agents have the potential to impact many other young people and by extension, improve the quality of their lives.
