VF Inc to Host 2011 Youth Series
“Have discipline, faith in yourself and faith in a higher power.”
Those were the words of Dr. Valda Henry, Chief Executive Officer of VF Inc, at the press conference for the 2011 Youth Series at the Garraway Hotel this morning.
With the theme, “Empowering our youth for a better future” the programme is meant to provide an opportunity for young persons during the summer, to discuss topics not generally found in the school curriculum.
Some of the objectives of the programme are to provide an avenue for the youth to discuss issues relevant to their needs, inspire and encourage the youth to be the best they can be, explore issues of self- esteem and confidence, provide understanding of money, and give guidance on career choices.
The programme will run from July 25th to July 30th 2011 at the pastoral centre in Morne Bruce. It ends with a hike on the second segment of the Waitikubuli Trail from Bellevue to Soufriere.
Speakers during the programme include Franklin Moses who will conduct the segment on “Change your words, Change your life”.
Sponsors of the event are National Bank of Dominica (NBD), First Caribbean International Bank (FCIB), Gentle Rest Funeral Services, and Q95. The registration fee is $100. The program is geared towards students aged 13- 18.
