Guyana’s youth now better prepared for leadership roles- Minister Hughes


Compared to the days of yesteryear, Guyana’s youths today are a lot more prepared to take the reins of leadership, Minister of Telecommunication Cathy Hughes has said.
Following the graduation of some 74 young professionals and community youth leaders on Sunday, Minister Hughes said that compared to days gone by, today’s youths are being offered better opportunities to prepare them for leadership roles.

The graduates had completed the Youth Leadership Programme overseen by the Office of the Presidential Advisor on Youth Empowerment.

The overall objective of the third and final segment of the Module Two of the leadership programme, was to instruct the young leaders in various empowering mechanisms; so that they could participate in decision making and represent themselves and their communities. Like module one, which commenced in February 2016, the training was held over two weekends and participants were awarded certificates upon completion.
Speaking with the Department of Telecommunication (DPI) on Sunday at the Madewini Training Centre, Minister Hughes said the information laid out in the module is set to build a new generation in Guyana. She said the youths of today are fortunate to have these opportunities, including being able to understand the operation of Guyana’s Parliament.
“The first time I went into parliament was actually the first time I was becoming a member of parliament (MP), so I am excited today that young people are far better prepared than we were in my day.”
