GHS Young Leaders get ‘thumbs up’ from Digicel

Last Friday, March 13, Digicel joined members of the Girls’ High School (GHS) Young Leaders in the ‘Thumbs Up – Being a Responsible User of all forms of Technology’ initiative.

The ‘Thumbs Up – Being a Responsible User of all forms of Technology’ initiative was launched on Tuesday, March 10 at the GHS compound at Richmond Hill and explores technology best practices.{{more}} It aims to stop the irresponsible usage of all forms of technology.

On Friday, members of the GHSYL and Digicel personnel set up shop under the gallery of the General Post Office in Kingstown, where they attempted to promote awareness among drivers in St Vincent and the Grenadines, as it relates to mobile devices and computers.

Friday’s initiative saw the distribution of bumper stickers calling for safe driving practices, as the GHS Young Leaders continue their thrust towards the top spot in the 2015 RBTT/RBC Young Leaders competition.

The initiative also partners with the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force.

Marketing manager at Digicel Juno DeRoche said that Digicel encourages the responsible use of technology, while stressing that the bumper sticker idea is a good one, as it helps get the message of the safe use of technology across to motorists by an “in your face” bumper sticker presentation.
