An appeal has been made for the nation’s youths to make sure their voices are heard on matters of National Development.
This appeal was made by a number of speakers during this morning’s opening ceremony of a two-day Leadership Symposium being hosted by the General Employees Co-operative Credit Union Limited (GECCU).
Fifty GECCU Scholarship holders are participating in the Leadership Symposium which is taking place at the Anglian Pastoral Center in New Montrose under the theme “Gen Z: Credit Union Agents for Change”.
Delivering the feature address this morning’s, Kimberly Cambridge, Past GECCU Scholarship Holder, reminded the youths that they are the future of National Development.
She also reminded them that their Generation which is commonly known as Generation Z is still in the developing stages and they have the power to move the credit union movement and the nation on a whole forward, to unprecedented levels.
Meanwhile, Danny-Lee Francis while delivering remarks on behalf of Chairperson of the GECCU Scholarship Committee, Mineva Glasgow said the current leaders have to listen to what the youths have to say for the youth to take their rightful place in the development of any society.
Gary Mathias, President of GECCU, added that the Government alone cannot ensure the educational development of the youths and he reiterated that GECCU is committed to doing its part in this regard.
He also reminded Generation Z that while they strive for educational excellence, they should also seek to ensure the holistic development of themselves and their peers.
