Caribbean Youth Fest is an annual event that provides a forum to showcase, promote, and develop the musical and related talents of our youth, while utilizing their talent and influences to spread positive values and healthy lifestyles.
Our vision includes influencing their values and behavior and bonding with the various stakeholders through the music and lyrics of their peers.
The organization also directs their focus and efforts to the virtue of “Charity”. Over the past several years Caribbean Youth Fest has donated EC$66,345 to community organizations committed to assisting those in need.
Caribbean Youth Fest collaborates with Corporate Caribbean via sponsorship in preserving, promoting and developing our Caribbean Culture and Values through the music of our youth, as part of corporate social responsibility.
