Youth Appreciated for Contribution to National Development
Mrs. Justina Charles, Minister for Youth, Sports and Culture continues to be an advocate for youth development.
Honourable Charles believes it is important that we identify ways to show our youth that they are an integral part of the fabric of our nation, and that their contribution to National development is appreciated.
She said in a more complex world young people will always be faced with new types of social challenges.
However, she advised that they should use these challenges to enhance themselves and thrive in society.
Mrs. Charles said the Government of Dominica will continue to play its part to compliment the efforts of the National Youth Council, as they deliver to the youth the best opportunities in realizing their true potential.
She mentioned the significant opportunities; the Government of Dominica has unlocked to alleviate unemployment, with a focus on self-empowerment through programs and small business loans.
It is the belief of the Minister that the youth in Dominica contribute significantly to our overall development.
