The conference which runs from 29th October to November 1st, will be held for the first time in the federation and will attract representation from countries within Rotary’s 7030 district and will be held under the theme “Youth Taking Charge.”
The countries stretch southward from St. Kitts and Nevis to French Guiana with a selection of participants from the Cayman Islands and Anguilla; which fall under Rotary’s 7020 district.
Meanwhile, a 40-member Nevis contingent will also be in attendance.
Coordinator of the Youth Division at the Social Services Department, on Nevis, said she was “Looking forward to the workshops.”
“I think that it would be a benefit to the youth. They are going to take them out of the classroom basically and put them in another setting where there are peers that they can communicate with and actually get to develop their skills,” Pemberton said.
Ms. Powell, who benefitted from attending past leadership conferences said she was eager to once again be a part of the weekend conference.
According to Ms. Powell, leadership conferences teach networking skills, how to manage a group, how to deal with activities and how to deal with problematic situations that arise in a professional environment.
