JeanMinister of Education Petter Saint Jean has advised the country’s youth to take charge of their future.Mr. Saint Jean was addressing a ceremony in which of 11, 265 new books were donated to educational institutions on the island by the Baptist Family Foundation of St. Joseph in partnership with the Global Literacy Project.The Minister said his government will make resources available to assist the country’s youth but notes that they are ultimately responsible for their education as well as their future.“I call on the young people of Dominica to take charge of your future; take charge of your own future, take care of your own education. The government is prepared, is willing to assist but you need to come on board in a real way and take ownership of your education and we will take it from there.”He says there are many examples of people who came from remote communities but have become success stories available to the young people which they should emulate.“We have clear living examples of people who grew up in remote, distant communities and maybe the system gave up on most of us but we see people just like you who are able to fight against the odds and have made it; they have succeeded, they are success stories.”The Minister noted that this should be an example to the youth that if they do their best they will succeed.Meanwhile Parliamentary Representative of the St. Joseph Constituency who also spoke at the ceremony challenged the youth to find ways to empower themselves.“I want to challenge our youth as well that they need to continue to find ways and means to empower themselves and while it is true that you may be going to school but yet still you have to find other innovative and creative ways to push yourself to the limit because you will only reach as far as you are able to push yourselves as young people and that is very important.”Darroux said; “Dominica’s young people have a bright future” as there are countless opportunities available to them however, they must take advantage of them.“While we have these opportunities we have to take advantage of them because the government can only go as far as providing these opportunities but as young people you have to take these opportunities and move on with them. You do not expect the government to do everything for you but when you’re given an opportunity take advantage of it, you should not waste it.”According to Darroux often times young people do not capitalize on the opportunities which are afforded to them and “complain that nothing is being done”.He said; “We have the opportunities now so let’s take advantage of these opportunities; let’s maximize them and let’s continue to progress ourselves and in so doing we will progress this country”.Dominica Vibes News Share EducationLocalNewsPrimarySecondaryTertiary Education Minister advises youth to take charge of their future by: – February 13, 2012last_img read more
