As St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) ushered in its first National Youth Parliament yesterday, July 21, Minister of Education Curtis King says this historic setting is a platform for grooming future leaders.
The Education Minister lamented the absence of a robust National Youth Council (NYC), from which many leaders and current parliamentarians passed through, he added that this Youth Parliament gives hope to a reviving of the National Youth Council.
“…I know what a wonderful training organization NYC was and therefore I am looking forward to the revitalization of the NYC and I really hope that this summit would act as a stimulus for such an eventuality”.
The Bill that was tabled in the Youth Parliamentarian was the Education Transformation Bill. (API)
