The conference is being supported by the Non State Actors Panel, funded by the European Union Development Fund.

The conference will cater for over 100 youths from across the state, who would be addressed by NYC officials, Non State Actors Panel, the Minister of Youth, along with panels to look at: The role of youth in an ever changing technological society; the role of the NYC in youth development in SVG; and Volunteerism – its role in youth work development.

The mobilisation conference is being held ahead of a conference of delegates for the NYC, scheduled for July 2013.
