"The opportunity is ours to be the architects of our nation’s wealth - not wealth through money, but through the prosperity of a people."
Tevin Shepherd, 2016
In honour of International Youth Day, we continue to highlight the work of outstanding young persons from across the Caribbean who have been positively impacting their communities. CREN Team member Hannah Enightoola recently had the opportunity to chat with Tevin Shepherd, a 23 year old Youth Development Specialist from St. Lucia. He shared his motivations, struggles and successes in executing youth development programmes across his island. Mr. Shepherd was a Commonwealth finalist and received the prestigious Queen’s Young Leaders Award in June 2016. He is also a Chevening Scholar and will pursue a Master of Arts in International Social Development in the UK from September 2016.
