St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): With about 200 young people expected to take up residence at the Beach Allen Primary School for the 34th annual Youth Empowerment Departmentâ€™s Residential Summer Camp, the Acting Director is making a call for persons to assist by volunteering as dorm leaders and councilors.
Speaking on WINN FMâ€™s Breakfast Show on Wednesday (May 30), Pierre Liburd, said they needed a total of 75 volunteers and were half way there.
â€œThis is your opportunity to play a significant part, we need reliable, mature persons to stand up and take advantage of this. If youâ€™re a nurse a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, if you barbecue chicken on the side of the road, whatever you do, if you have an interest in the development and growth of young people, if you wanna play a positive part this is your chance to do that. Donâ€™t allow yourself to be distracted by excuses, if you want time off we can assist by approaching your employer. Some persons take vacation leave to pursue this camp itâ€™s so impactful and you might want to take this approach as well. Itâ€™s a chance to not only contribute but to grow yourself.â€
