Persaud stated that the programme was launched on Saturday at the Anna Regina Secondary School and is derived from a contribution from the dynamic partnership of the Guyana Center for Civic Engagement (GyCCE) and funded by the U.S. Embassy.
According to him, the Goal of this initiative is to nurture youths and enable them with skills to foster constructive change.
“Our goal is to nurture a generation of leaders who are not only passionate about civic engagement but also equipped with the skills and commitment to drive positive change.”
He also revealed that the students will train for 2 months, and training will span across key areas such as civic engagement, voting education, conflict resolution, and project planning, alongside instilling a strong ethos of volunteerism within their communities.
Upon successful completion of the one-month implementation, students will receive a certificate in recognition of their dedication and completion of a community-based project.
This project’s component also aims to further instil the values of volunteerism and civic responsibility among participants and aims to cultivate a new generation of leaders who are not only knowledgeable about civic responsibility.
The success of the “YOUthEngage592” program underscores the commitment of GyCCE to foster youth development and promote democratic values in Guyana.
