Plateau Catholic Youths under the auspices of the Youth Commission of the Archdiocese of Jos are to train unskilled youths in various skills to cushion the effects of unemployment in the state.
The President of the Commission ,Mr John Mark, disclosed this in a statement made available to Nigeria News Agency in Jos on Monday.
Mark said the decision was reached by members of the Commission during their monthly parley with the administrator of the Catholic Archdiocese of Jos, Rev. Ignatius Kaigama.
He said the commission had resolved to ensure that those who were skilled in certain fields would train the unskilled ones amongst them.
He said this would go a long way in curtailing unemployment and youth restiveness as more youths would be employed and occupied.
The president said that the commission had resolved to help the aged and the less privileged in the society by training the less privileged ones certain skills that would make them self reliant.
According to him, the youths have also resolved to be good ambassadors of the Catholic Church among their peers and in the society.
He stated that the commission had also resolved to make a better use of the social media and to reduce to the barest minimum, its distracting effects. (NAN)
