Entrepot Secondary School Represented at Junior Achievement Global Youth Forum
Five Excellers team members of the Entrepot Secondary School, accompanied by Junior Achievement (JA) Teacher Advisor Ms. Jancel Mater, left Saint Lucia on Thursday July 5 for Mexico to participate in the Junior Achievement Global Youth Forum (JA GYF). The Saint Lucian team joined approximately 500 participants representing 43 different countries at the Hotel Hacienda Cocoyoc, Morelos, Mexico for one week of world-class keynote speakers, alumni panels, entrepreneurship workshops, business competitions, recreational activities, team-building activities and more.
The inaugural JA GYF, organised by the Junior Achievement Worldwide in collaboration with JA Mexico, marked the beginning of an 18-month-long JA Centennial celebration that not only inspired participants but also empowered and prepared them for their future careers and endeavours. Additional activities and training for teachers, chaperones, JA staff, board members and other non-student attendees kept all participants engaged.
The Entrepot Secondary School emerged winners of the 2nd Annual JA-Scotia Bank Innovation Camp Challenge with its Bank Your Selfie promotion and received an all-expensespaid trip to the GYF.
The Excellers toured Scotia Bank, Mexico and met with senior management executives.
They showcased Saint Lucia’s culture and history through song, dance, wearing the national dress and proudly displaying the Saint Lucian flag whenever and wherever the opportunity presented itself.
The forum concluded with a gala dinner and talent show competition on Thursday July 12.
