Youth to Youth Initiative is an umbrella non-profit, started in 2015 in Lithuania, which aims to foster change; construct an effective environment for youth participation in the decision making process and to provide a platform for young leaders to network and exchange ideas.

The theme for this years’ summit is “Youth Creating Social Innovations and Building a Sustainable Future by means of Information and Communication Technologies” and over 250 outstanding young leaders from across the globe are expected to be in attendance.

Mr. Jeremie is a strong advocate for youth development especially in the community of Laborie where he resides. This 20 year old has achieved quite a few accolades over the past few years among them being the 2016 Queen’s Young Leader Highly Commended Runner-up,  the Esteemed Volunteer of the Year Award and the Junior Achievement National Achiever of the Year 2012. He continues to work closely with the National Youth Council and Volunteer St. Lucia Chapters.

Mr. Jeremie remains resilient in his efforts to assist the youth in attaining success and his participation in this summit will allow for the further integration of Information and Communication Technologies ( ICT) into the services of the Trust as we seek to support  the youth and aspiring young entrepreneurs.
