CITICORP SETS UP $40,000 TRAINING FUND

The Citicorp Foundation has established a $40,000 “Citibank Community Fund” at the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands.
The fund is designed to provide assistance and support to residents of St. Thomas's public housing communities.
With monies from the Citibank fund, the V.I. Housing Authority will launch a training program Feb. 15 in computer literacy and job readiness skills for youth and adult residents of public housing.
The classes will be held at the Evelyn Webster Learning Center in Paul M. Pearson Gardens Housing Community. The center has been outfitted with seven state-of-the-art computers purchased through the Citibank fund.
Future initiatives of the Citibank Community Fund will address the needs of business development, career readiness and preparation for homeownership.
