NYC mobilizes for upcoming Biennial

The National Youth Council commemorated African Liberation Day on May 25, under the theme: “Remembering the past, Understanding the Present, Shaping the future”, with a mobilization and orientation session with a number of youth organizations in Kingstown.{{more}}

The session which was hosted by a long standing affiliate, the Green Hill Sports and Cultural Club, had representatives from 10 organizations and heard addresses from Curtis King, past president, on factors which supported the successes of the council in its early existence; Major Dwight Lewis, past executive member, who spoke on the guiding principles of the council and Carlos Williams, past executive member, who highlighted pictorially some of the benefits of the council to individuals, organizations and state.

The month of May has also been celebrated as the anniversary of the council since its establishment in 1966. The session on Saturday was the third in a series of mobilization and orientation sessions which began in February 2013. The aim is to have as many organizations and individuals more aware of the work of the council and the kind of representation which is necessary at the level of the Executive. Another such session is slated for early June, before the Biennial meeting.
