(ZIZ News) — The newly formed youth group, St. Kitts-Nevis Youth (SKNY) is making plans to impact the young people of the Federation.
Founding member, Andre Carmichael told ZIZ News that SKNY’s main goals focus on empowering the Nation’s youth.
He said, “We know today we have a lot of youths in different situations. It’s just to get them all to come together and do something that they’re tailored to do. You know everybody has different talents or they’re capable of doing certain things….football, basketball, sewing, singing, dancing, so that’s what we’re trying to do, get them to do something along their avenue. Trying to get it done a different way to what people have done previously.”
SKNY Member Leslie Joseph, said the group is not a passing fad as it has long term plans to benefit young persons.
“I see SKNY being a permanent organisation on the island as it will bring the youth of both islands together and keep them together, working towards the overall betterment of society,” she explained.
So far, SKNY has organised a basketball tournament, football competition, health fairs, and played a part in the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party Celebration Concert featuring Jah Cure and Tanya Stephens.
