The President of the GINYSC, Ms. Raejean Montoute stated that “Every year our council seeks to provide a means of educational support to youth within the community, last year we undertook a project dubbed the GINYSC NEET Youth Scholarship (NEET means not in education, employment or training), in collaboration with the National Learning Enrichment Unit (NELU). Initially, the plan would have been to continue this project, however, given the pandemic our plans had to have changes. Nevertheless, we stay committed to assisting youth in our community”
The scholarship recipients’ were: Mr. Jordan Peter (Gros Islet Primary), Gem Michaud (Gros Islet Primary), and Tavvi Anthony (Monchy Primary)
The GINYSC would like to take this opportunity to grant a special thank you to the Gros Islet Primary School and affiliates of the GINYSC for assisting in the nomination of these candidates.
