Division Of Youth Makes Call For Youth Ambassadors

PR – The Division of Youth within the Ministry  of Youth and Sports is elated to announce the relaunch of its National Youth Ambassador  Programme, which aims to create a new generation of leaders and elevate the voices of the  country’s youth. This project seeks to give young people—between the ages of 16 and 29— a forum to lead community projects, lobby for change, and act as catalysts for social change. 

National Youth Ambassadors will play a pivotal role in driving change at both local and national levels, from organising community events and awareness campaigns to collaborating with policymakers and stakeholders. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to make a tangible difference in their communities and beyond. 

The Programme will empower young leaders to voice their concerns and contribute to  meaningful solutions, as well as address the urgent need for youth representation and  engagement in decision-making processes across various sectors, with education, youth  violence, mental health, and environmental sustainability at the forefront.  

According to Coordinator of Youth (Ag.), Ms. Carlene Perryman, “the ultimate goal is to  empower young people to become active, engaged citizens who are capable of driving  positive change in their communities and beyond. We hope that by participating in this  programme, Youth Ambassadors will develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence they  need to become effective leaders and advocates for years to come. Together, we can create  a brighter future for all youths, hence we are calling on Youth changemakers, to apply to  become part of this prestigious corps of young people who are ready to LEAD, INSPIRE  and make a difference”. 

Young people are the greatest resource for the future development of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, and they are also the prime investors in its development. 

Therefore, the Division of Youth is calling on youths to come together to build a brighter Grenada for future generations.

A competitive application process will be used to choose a group of enthusiastic and  motivated individuals to serve as National Youth Ambassadors. To enhance their advocacy  strategies, communication skills, and leadership aptitudes, they will be provided with  extensive training, mentorship, and support.
