Dept. Of Youth Empowerment Volunteer Media Bootcamp Closing Ceremony
Basseterre, St. Kitts, March 29th, 2021 (ZIZ News) The Department of Youth Empowerment Volunteer Media Boot Camp came to a close on Saturday with a ceremony at the CUNA Caribbean Conference Centre.
The volunteers spent weeks being exposed to a wide range of media training such as video recording, editing, photography, and social that will enhance their skillset both personally and professionally.
The 15 volunteers were placed in three groups and were asked to create a poster that encourages the youth to take precautions against Covid-19 and an environmental video that motivate the youth to create initiatives that preserve the beauty of the island and its eco-systems.
During the ceremony, the groups took turns presenting the final version of each project.
Following the project presentations, the volunteers were given certificates for their participation in the programme.
The certificates were issued by Minister of Education, Hon. Jonell Powell who urged the volunteers to use the certification to do bigger things that will highlight their talent.
He also commended Director in the Department of Youth Empowerment Pierre Liburd and Naadiya Mills of Food for Creative Souls who orchestrated the training sessions in collaboration with advertising firm 72 and Sunny in the US.
