Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta February 17. THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Youth Column Youtfi training program success MONTREAL (CP) Edu- cation and the workaday world have met successfully in a recently developed youth retraining program of the Bank of Montreal. About 30 students have finished the first session and testify enthu- siastically to its effectiveness. Dubbed Youth Project by the bank, the program is es- sentially an effort to retrain young people for jobs in busi- ness. It employs up-todate teaching techniques and equipment in a relaxed, infor- mal atmosphere. There are no exams, and classes are held in gaily col- ored rooms in downtown Place Bonaventure. Participants, who have fin- ished the course which began last September, are between the ages of 17 and 22. None of them had completed formal schooling beyond Grade 9 and many had dropped out as early as Grade 7. Doug Bridgman, 22, who left school several years ago when he was "half way through high says of the pro- ject: "I've got much more than 1 expected. I see my future now as inviting, attractive and sat- isfying." JOBS GUARANTEED All students who complete the course are guaranteed jobs with the bank, but are under no obligation to accept them. Doug would like to go into the Bank of Montreal's merit program, a training course given by the bank for poten- tial management trainees. During the course, which takes about three years to complete, the trainee works in Former British luxury liner still problem MIAMI (AP) The trouble plagued former luxury line Queen Elizabeth was adrift but apparently not to danger off the coast of Haiti after a break- down in her boiler system. A spokesman for E. H. Mun- day Co., local agents for the re- christened Seawise University, said the old liner blew her boil- ers just off the Haitian coast. The ship was on its way to Hong Kong to be renovated and fitted as a seagoing university. The Queen left Port Ever- glades, Fla., last week on only six of her 12 boilers and only two of her four propellers. Halfway out of the port she blew another boiler but contin- ued with only five in operation. Owners of the ship, which had been docked in Port Everglades for 26 months, spent about million making her seaworthy for the long trip to Hong Kong. various departments of the bank with the goal of becom- ing qualified for the position of junior accountant or assist- ant manager. A bank spokesman says it "is a reasonable, easily real- ized ambition for many of the graduates of the youth re- training project to be ac- cepted for Uie permit pro- gram." David Kenworthy, 22, who has a Grade 9 education, has already been accepted for the permit program. He says that participating in the youth pro- ject has given him a "future." After completing the merit program, he hopes to work in personnel. Many in the group, such as 20-year-old Fred Butt, who worked for a time as a gro- cery boy, see their future in the bank's data processing de- partment. WORK AT OWN SPEED The project has stimulate! a real interest in educationa methods among many of the participants. One s e m i n a eroup spent several session discussing the weaknesses o formal education and came t the conclusion it was not fre enough. Not only are students in the youth project free to wear their hair long, attended classes in bare feet, partici- pate informally in seminars, smoke during classes and work at their own speed, but they are paid for attending the program. For a five-day, SMo-5 wees, the students are paid the fed- eral minimum wage of an hour. They are also enti- tled to all employment privi- leges of Bank of Montreal em- ployees. The basic remedial educa- tion subjects are mathemat- ics English and human rela- tions. The latter involves dis- cussions on drug usage, poli- tics and social issues. Ivan Eaton, director of the project, says the subjects are "business world oriented, but not necessarily directed to- ward the banking business." Mr. Eaton and his staff of five will try to find employ- ment for any student who de- cides banking is not for him.
