Youth support group holds fund raising dinner

Tonga Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship will hold a corporate fund raising dinner on September 27.

The dinner will be held at Ancient Tonga Fangaloto from 6.30pm.

Not-for-profit organisation TYEE was founded by Lusia Latu-Jones in 2014.

Latu-Jones said the organisation trained Tongan youth to be work-force ready and offered support for those who wanted to go into business.

She said Tonga  suffered from a high rate of youth unemployment in Tonga and an increasing number of school-leavers who were unable to find a job.

“Our youth comprise a large portion of the nation’s population,” she told the Pacific Cooperation Foundation.

“However, the simple fact is there are not enough jobs in Tonga to cater for our growing population and not everyone who completes their education will get a job.”

She described TYEE as a safe space that provided a range of free services.

It advocated for policies to support youth employment and raised awareness about youth employment challenges in Tonga
