NPMC is proud to support the Pan in Schools Co-ordinating Council’s (PSCC) Vacation Programme which has been in existence for more than fifteen (15) years. After having conducted a needs assessment with educators across Trinidad and Tobago, the PSCC’s focus has been on harnessing the skills and developing the talents of marginalised youths in many communities through various programmes in Panorama Arranging and CSEC Music Composition.
This PSCC’s Vacation Programmehas produced many success stories inseveral communities and many participants have returned to their schools and youth groups as trainees, essentially passing on the skills acquired to their classmates, under the supervision of their teachers. Additionally, upon completing the workshops participants leave with a portfolio of their work and continue to develop their music using software to record their arrangements and compositions which are submitted as components of their CSEC Music Examinations.
As a proud sponsor, this initiative allows the NPMC to support the preservation of our culture for future generations and the success of this venture allows at-risk youth to develop practical skills that can be honed and nurtured into entrepreneurial skills.
