Government Discussing Scholarships For Youth In Sports

Safe Spaces for Youth was the theme designated for International Youth Day observed on Sunday August 12, 2018. 

This year the day promoted the use of safe spaces where youth can come together, and engage in activities related to their diverse needs and interests.

Parliamentary Secretary responsible for youth Gregory Willock used the day to outline the ways in which his administration has accommodated the needs of young people.

He highlighted the provision of scholarships for youth in the area of sports as one of the opportunities being created for young people to contribute more meaningfully to the islands development.

Former Parliamentary Secretary for Youth Jermaine Wade added this perspective to the theme.
