Barbadians between the ages of 15 and 29 are reminded of the second business meeting of the National Youth Forum (NYF) to be held this Saturday.??
The session will be held in the Liberal Arts Auditorium of the Barbados Community College, at 10:00 a.m.
The agenda includes the examination of the recommendations for addressing the nine focus questions discussed at the first session, to prioritise these recommendations, to suggest how they can be implemented and to install an Interim Steering Committee.
The NYF, launched on July 4, has been created to, among other things, mobilise young people for constructive engagement with their peers, the community and the wider society; provide a permanent platform for the youth to be heard and taken seriously; empower them to seek enterprising and innovative solutions to the problems they face, while exploring new pathways to progress; and give opportunities and support systems for young leaders to emerge.
The NYF will convene in various parts of the island and make recommendations to government regarding any policies required to empower the nation’s youth.
Persons interested in learning more about the Forum or to register for the next business meeting should log on to the website www.nationalyouthforum.org. firstname.lastname@example.org??????????????????
