Empowering young males for the world of work and society will be the focus of a seminar to be hosted next week by The St. Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School.
Entitled: "It’s My Life: Empowering Young Men Through Personal & Professional Development," it is scheduled to take place at the Hilton Barbados next Monday, March 15 from 8:30 a.m.
A key objective of the seminar will be to provide strategies for young male school-leavers who will be faced with obstacles in their quest to attain academic, personal and social advancement. The sessions will, therefore, place emphasis on social grooming, financial planning and show students how to market themselves for success.??
Among the facilitators will be Senator Jepter Ince, Nancy Bowen and Stephne Goddard who will speak on "Money Matters"; "Marketing Yourself For Success" and "Good Manners Means Good Business," respectively.
Principal of The St. Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School, Joseph King will deliver opening remarks, while Speaker of the House of Assembly, Michael Carrington will address the students.
