On Wednesday 7th February 2018 the National Youth Council of Dominica commenced its first in a series of District Youth Outreaches. On Wednesday we visited the South Eastern District spanning from Grandfond to Delicies.
The objective of the outreach is two folded, it is one to determine the current state of affairs of our various youth groups and District Youth Councils and secondly to sensitize youth of the upcoming General Assembly which will see the election of a new executive board. This is a joint effort with the Division of Youth as they also operate within these districts. The Youth Officer responsible for the South Eastern District is Mr. Shawn Amon a very dynamic and jovial young leader.
While there we also had the opportunity to network with various young entrepreneurs and students of the Morne John primary school. Generally, the youth of this district is still very much spirited and determine to leave productive lives.
Some of the needs that arouse is that of employment and vocational skill straining particularly in the construction and related fields to support Dominica’s reconstruction efforts.
