The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Saint Lu­cia Na­tional Youth Coun­cil (SLNYC), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Na­tional Stu­dents Coun­cil (NSC) and the Global En­vi­ron­ment Fa­cil­ity and part­ners, of­fi­cially an­nounces the host­ing of the 2018 “Lu­cian Lead­ers’ Sum­mit” from Au­gust 13 to 17, 2018. This much an­tic­i­pated event seeks to gather stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tives from var­i­ous sec­ondary schools, the Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege and other ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions across the island, pro­vid­ing them with an op­por­tu­nity to em­bark on a jour­ney of em­pow­er­ment and proac­tive lead­er­ship.

The "Lu­cian Lead­ers’ Sum­mit” has ini­tially been de­signed to pro­mote an experience-based ap­proach to stu­dent-friendly learn­ing. This pro­gramme will mo­ti­vate par­tic­i­pants to de­velop and ex­pand on their or­gan­i­sa­tional skill set and then use this to en­gen­der a more pro-ac­tive stu­dent lead­er­ship move­ment in their schools for the up­com­ing school year and be­yond.

The sum­mit aims to en­cour­age stu­dents to take a more ac­tive role as it re­lates to stu­dent governance, and spear­head more stu­dent­fo­cused ini­tia­tives and ac­tiv­i­ties, along with ad­vo­cat­ing for their fel­low class­mates in an or­gan­ised and pro­fes­sional man­ner.

This year’s sum­mit will ad­dress En­vi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion by tack­ling sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment goals 13, 14 and 15, trans­form­ing par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents and youth lead­ers from pas­sive to ac­tive learn­ers by car­ry­ing out var­i­ous ini­tia­tives within their re­spec­tive schools. More in­for­ma­tion will be pro­vided to se­lected stu­dents fol­low­ing regis­tra­tion.

Stu­dents who are in­ter­ested in be­ing part of the Lu­cian Lead­ers’ Sum­mit 2018 are kindly asked to contact nyc.saintlu­, via tele­phone at 720-3001 / 714-2416 or visit the SLNYC of­fice, Wil­liam Peter Boule­vard, Cas­tries. Look out for the des­ig­nated venue and fur­ther de­tails.
