As a Mentor at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech, Jamaica) You Have the Wonderful Opportunity to Draw On your Life Experiences, Failures and Triumphs to Guide and Encourage Students …

Who feel lonely, confused, completely overwhelmed

Who are at a crossroads, needing to make a critical do-or-die decisions but don’t have the experience or information needed, or the confidence to just-make-the-decision and move on with life powerfully

Who need someone that they know for sure is in their corner. Someone who has time for them…to listen, to understand, to encourage…to give them room to explore and fail without judgment, as well as to celebrate with them when they get it right

Who need someone to provide a safe space to work through the challenging life experiences, and be better, stronger, and wiser for it.

And our students at UTech, especially our final year students, need someone wise to the world, and to the workplace, to listen, to understand, to gently guide and to celebrate with them, as they take their final steps as students and transition into the uncertainties of:  job search; the workplace; re-paying student loans; establishing a meaningful career and creating a future they can pursue with hope and passion.

The Career & Placement Unit  is seeking to recruit 150 new & returning mentors to UTech Jamaica’s  Annual Mentorship Programme.

Can You Invest in UTech, Jamaica and the Caribbean by Mentoring an Upcoming Professional for this Academic Year 2016/17?

Green Dollar Sign, Isolated On White

 

The Development Bank of Jamaica has introduced a programme called the Voucher for Technical Assistance (VTA) to assist micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in strengthening their managerial and administrative abilities to improve their creditworthiness.

Great for use in rooms where lights are habitually left on!

Saves Energy!

“It’s durable. The energy level lasts long. It is convenient when you don’t want to use JPS light” – Rachana McPherson, FELS, Class of 20111

Dear UTech, Jamaica,  Alumni Communitiy & Friends,

With your help our recent LUCI LIGHT FUNDRAISER, JULY 2016 was a success! Thanks to you, 95+ persons offered support. TOGETHER we exceeded our minimum sales goal of 100 lights and sold 144 Luci Lights + attracted open donations from persons who didn’t want lights, but wished to support UTech, Jamaica! Contribution $1700.

Our purpose for our fundraiser is to support the University’s Student Welfare Fund, as well as Student Engagement & Alumni Engagement activities.

“It makes a good night light on the lower setting and it does give good illumination on the bright setting.” Jody-Ann Finakin, SCIT Alumna

In July, we partnered with a retailer of the lights, and we received a commission. For August, 2016 we hope to purchase lights and retail them ourselves as this would be more advantageous to our University.

“Quite bright, lightweight. I keep it in the car for emergencies. I love it!”Hermine Bascoe, FHAS, Class of 2006

We also hope to arrange for Salary Deductions for UTech, Jamaica Staff who may be interested in purchasing Luci Lights.

“We’ve been having power cuts and were very elated to have the use of Luci Lights. It has adequate illumination, allowing us to even read the newspaper.”Basil Clarke, Class of 2002
