“The aforementioned statistics make a strong case for youth leadership development to be addressed in a transformative manner in order to ensure that tomorrow’s adults have the requisite skills and opportunities to contribute effectively to the wider economic growth and social development of the OECS.

“The Youth LEAD conference is designed to assist in strengthening youth development and leadership initiatives in the region and provide an excellent opportunity for outstanding experiences that will nurture our youth to LEAD.  It will also afford them the opportunity to network with peers from across the ECCU in keeping with the thrust towards closer OECS integration as one key component of the region’s development.

FIM is a collaborative effort among the East Caribbean Currency Union Member Governments, Financial and Academic Institutions, the Media, Private and Public Sector Institutions and Community Based Groups.

The month forms part of an ECCU Financial Education Program coordinated by the ECCB.
