In photo: Mr. Edward Registe.Edward Registe, member of the Grand Bay Village Council and former president of the National Youth Council (NYC), has admonished young people that they are leaders of the present and not of tomorrow.“It is often said that young people are the leaders of tomorrow, it is often said that young people are the leaders of today but I want to suggest that you are simply leaders of the present, because you are never sure when you are being called upon or when you are being thrust into leadership” he said.Registe who was at the time addressing the 15th meeting of the NYC’s General Assembly says young people need to understand their role as leaders.“Leadership does not necessarily mean being in Government or at the head of some policy making committee, leadership means whom you are, you can lead at your home, in your community, and in your country. You can lead the world, but it is important that young people understand their role in leadership.”Registe urged the forum to ensure that their theme “Embracing the Opportunity of Youth Development and Leadership” is embedded in their minds and that they embrace the many opportunities made available to them.“You know the opportunities that are available to you, many of which were not available to us when we were young. And the question is, are you embracing the opportunities that are available to you? Are you even interested in embracing the opportunities available to you?  And we don’t have to outline them, but we know a few of them that come to mind; scholarships readily available, health care and other programs even opportunities for income generation with the Youth Business Trust and others and we know them. The question is how prepared are you to embrace these opportunities? And what can you do to embrace those opportunities that are available to young people?” he said.He charged the National Youth Council to ensure that they make our youth more opportunity ready within our society.Dominica Vibes News Sharecenter_img 33 Views   no discussions Tweet Sharelast_img
