That is our strong base, that’s our community people who would actually come to the General Assembly to have the new executive elected, so its important to have those up and running”, said Wenham.Miss Wenham says the National Youth Council is also concerned with the level of violence in our schools.She said that as a teacher she is aware of the incidents that occur at schools from time to time and the NYC will be partnering with the schools to address this pressing issue.Another main area of concern for the NYC President is the issue of unemployment among the youth.Miss Wenham said, “entrepreneurship is high on the agenda and unemployment as well. We will also address issues relating to HIV/AIDS – the advocacy; bringing out the message”.Her encouragement for the youth is to remain positive in everything that they do.She has issued a call for the youth to rally with the NYC in addressing the many issues facing them as they work together for a brighter future.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Newly elected NYC President to tackle youth unemployment and violence in Schools by: – July 22, 2011 Share Share 24 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!
