MELAKA: It was a day to remember for Montfort Youth Centre (MYC) Batch 19 students on October 30.

Looking smart and handsome in their suits, these 39 young men graduated after studying for two years in their various technical fields, passing their SKM Level 2 for Motor Mechanics students, SKM Level 3 for IT students and ILP Certificates for Single Phase Wiring and 3G SMAW (Welding) for General Maintenance students.

The ceremony was graced by Bro Robin Devasagayam sg, Director of Montfort Boys Town and one of two founders of MYC.

MYC was founded on August 1, 2001, by the then young missionary Brothers of St Gabriel; Bro Robin and Bro Peter Kolandai Samy sg who is the current director of MYC. In his speech, Bro Robin congratulated the students for their perseverance and achievements.

He also congratulated Bro Peter for the Phase One building which is near completion, consisting of a multi-purpose hall, student affairs and pastoral care building and kitchen.

He wished Bro Peter all the best for taking a big leap to open MYC to disabled youth, thus building the next Phase, a disabled-friendly training workshop/classrooms and a disabled-friendly dormitory.

The auspicious ceremony was attended by MYC Board members, Brothers, Sisters, staff, parents/guardians, and current students, following strict SOPs. Bro Peter thanked everyone, especially friends of Montfort and all donors, for making this day possible for the youth to have a better future, to earn a decent living and to start contributing to their families and to society.

He urged the public to contribute generously for this worthy cause, as donations to MYC have dropped drastically due to the pandemic.
