(PRESS RELEASE) – The new Choiseul Youth and Sports Council executive hosted its first community Capacity Building workshop at the Piaye Secondary School from the 3rd of November to the 4th of November, 2017. Youth leaders in the community participated in a series of activities aimed at honing their leadership skills.
The resource persons who included Mr. Charde Desir, Mrs. Lavorne Verdant- Desir and Mr. Jonathon Chalon, facilitated sessions based on team dynamics, proposal writing, communication and community mobilization.
The Choiseul Youth and Sports Council is fortunate to have had access to the wealth of knowledge of former CARICOM Youth Ambassadors, in the person Mr. Desir, and former Commonwealth Youth Ambassadors, Mrs. Verdant-Desir and Mr. Chalon.
Several Choiseul Youth and Sports Council affiliates participated in and dubbed the workshop a success because of the practical and hands on approach which the sessions took.
