National Students Council Executive to be revived during youth conference

 Share This On:

The Saint Lucia National Youth Council (NYC) wishes to inform the public that the National Students’ Conference is set to take place February 1-2, 2013.

The two-day conference will culminate in the election of a National Students Council Executive – a vital branch which has been dormant for the past seven years.

Seven delegates from tertiary and secondary schools have been invited to this conference, and an estimated 200 participants are expected to converge at Spinners in Union for the two days along with the presence of the last executive body.

The National Students’ Council is a student-led body that represents students island-wide. Their purpose is to advocate for students, represent St. Lucian students locally and internationally to decision making bodies, and to promote students’ education and well-being.

This conference is part of a phased approach of the NYC in revitalising the youth movement, Youth Advocacy and youth participation in St. Lucia and the Caribbean region.

The NYC, with the generous support of the Ministry of Youth Development and Sports, and the Ministry of Education is looking forward to the conference with anticipation of a high calibre of student leadership that will emerge as the new National Student Executive for 2013.
