Notably, the CFBC-Jenkins Leadership Course is a 16-week program geared towards assisting professionals in becoming exceptional leaders.

Throughout the course, the professionals were introduced to a number of vital topics, which included business management, Project Planning, Conflict Resolution and communication among many others.

In order to graduate the professionals were required to successfully execute a business project and a community project.

For their Community Project, the Cohort adopted the Gillards playing field in St. Peters which they outfitted with new amenities and a facelift.  The Business Project was a Fashion show and cocktail at the Eco Park.

Proceeds from the Fashion Cocktail event will be donated to the Clothing and Textile Departments of various high schools.

The uplifting graduation ceremony included remarks by the President of the CFBC, Mrs. Ionie Willett and was impacted with a heart to heart featured address by Dr. Osbert Liburd.

The Cohort would wish to express its deepest gratitude to CFBC, Jenkins Limited, Jenkins Real Estate and to the many visiting Lecturers for giving them the opportunity of this life changing experience.
