Providenciales, 23 Sept 2015 – It is National Youth Week and the PDM in a media statement says it’s Radio Show “Raising TCI” will return to the airwaves with a theme to honor young people.
Opposition Leader, Sharlene Robinson explained about Youth guests that: “We will hear from them the challenges and what they feel can be done. We will also celebrate with the Miss Teen Organization….”
Hon Robinson listed some challenges for young people including: “unemployment; under employment; depression; poverty; the growing inability to find their place or worth in their own country … lack of adult guidance; crimes; juvenile delinquency and improper facilities and programs…” but in her address, there was a charge for young people to, and again I quote: “…rise up and make your positive mark. You are required to contribute positively towards nation building. That is your duty and more so as you are the inheritors of what you build or destroy today.”
National Youth Day is on Friday; it is a public holiday in the Turks and Caicos.
