The Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, Senator Warren Newby will attend the Special Meeting of Commonwealth Caribbean Regional Youth Ministers to be held in Bridgetown, Barbados from March 21-23.
The meeting will revise the Commonwealth Youth Programme Strategic Plan 2008-2012; analyse policy and capacity gaps towards an effective youth development agenda; examine youth governance and participation for effective youth services delivery; and will serve as a preparatory meeting for the Commonwealth Ministerial mid-term review to be held in Sri Lanka later this year.
The Commonwealth Youth Programme (CYP) is an international development agency working with young people between the ages of 15 and 29. It forms part of the Commonwealth Secretariat, and is active in the Commonwealth’s 52 member countries.
Senator Newby travels at no expense to the Government of Jamaica.
