Youth Challenge Guyana in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports will host a Youth Skills Summit for Georgetown youths between the ages of 13 to 18 years at Camp Madewini along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway.

A press release from Youth Challenge Guyana stated that the summit, which expects to involve some 150 youths will be held over a four-day period commencing October 14 and will examine topical issues like HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, goal setting and career objectives.

The sessions, which will be conducted by local professionals, will include hard skill sessions where participants will learn valuable life skills.

This is the fifth such workshop to be held in Guyana so far; the previous ones were held with the assistance of the Canadian International Development Agency, the National Bank of Industry and Commerce and the British High Commission.

Interested persons can receive more information about the summit or apply to be a part of it by either calling 50129 or visiting the Youth Challenge office at 183 Quamina street, South Cummingsburg, Georgetown.
