Government’s newest initiative to empower the island’s youth will be unveiled within a few days.
Minister of Youth, Family and Sports, Stephen Lashley, will host a press conference this Saturday, May 22, to discuss the launch of the National Youth Forum. It will be held in the main conference room of the Ministry of Education, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
The National Youth Forum will provide a structured opportunity for young people to make an input into the formulation of Government’s policies which affect them. It will be a permanent body which will sit throughout the island.
Mr. Lashley has described the Forum as "an action-oriented" series of conferences which would address the issues that confront young people in the 21st century. "It will give young men and women an opportunity to share ideas on how best to improve their lives and contribute to national development," he asserted.
