13787136-mmmainThe National Community Enhancement Project, announced by Minister of Community Affairs Hon. Osbourne Bodden in the Legislative Assembly in late October, provides opportunities for unemployed Caymanians to work for up to three weeks (two weeks before Christmas and one week in the New Year), as well as enhancing the physical environment for the benefit of the community.

Similar initiatives have taken place in recent years.

Registration for the three-week initiative on Grand Cayman takes place Tuesday to Thursday (December 1-3, 2015).

The Project will cover repairs and maintenance, gardening, cleaning parks, beaches and roadside verges. A similar project has already commenced on the Sister Islands under the supervision of District Administration.

The initiative is led by a cross-Ministerial team. The Office of the Deputy Governor is providing administrative coordination.

Other Government agencies involved include: the National Roads Authority, the Department of Environmental Health, and the Public Works Department – in particular its Recreation, Parks and Cemeteries Section.

The three-week project will run from December 7-18; and continue January 11-15, 2016. Participants in the project will be expected to work from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Operational Project Manager is Mr. Mark Bothwell, who is also Manager of PWD’s Recreation, Parks and Cemeteries Section. He notes that people may sign-up and complete registration forms at the following places and times during Tuesday to Thursday (December 1-3):

National Workforce Development Agency (upstairs, Midtown Plaza) – December 1 & 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and December 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Work will only be offered to unemployed Caymanians ages 18 and older, as well as unemployed spouses of Caymanians, and unemployed permanent residents who have the right to work. Supporting documentation to prove immigration status is required at registration.
