The TYEE Fashion Show is all about Youth Employment & Unemployment. Highlighting Employment Opportunities for the Youth and raising awareness about Youth Unemployment.
The models have been grouped according to different industries. They will be strutting the runway representing their industry & business of interest.
We had the chance to catch up with JAYCEE from the IT group and he was decked out in his tupenu & ta'ovala and a nice long sleeve green shirt.
"What's up Jaycee? Looking really formal there bro."
*Jaycee smiling* "I just got back from a job interview."
"Yeah? How did it go?"
"You sound confident."
"Yes I am actually. We did some training here at TYEE and that really helped me with the interview."
"That's great. So what made you sign up for the Fashion Show?"
"I want to help other youths realise that it does work!"
"That they can come here and get support to find a job."
"Many of the youths I know want jobs but they are just too shy to come forward and get help."
"Yes it's really hard for the youth but if they see that I can do it then hopefully that'll help them overcome their shyness."
"Jaycee you the man!"
We took a few pics of Jaycee to post but he said not to worry about it. He will send some to use. Next day we get a pic of Jaycee with the famous Ipanema beach in Rio in the back and his name lined across on top of the mountain. Wow! The man can model, cares about the youth, and got some computer skills as well!
Come and see Jaycee lay it down on the runway for the youth, with the youth & everything youth on 25th Nov 2016.
