Rotary Sunrise empowers youth with camp donation

A $2,600 monetary gift from Rotary
Sunrise is helping kids learn, in part, how to behave in the working world.

The learning will take place this
summer at Youth Vocational Camp, also known as Career Camp.

“The campers will be exposed to
four distinct sections of camp; fashion design, multimedia and broadcasting,
office procedures and interviews. Each day they will be afforded a brief
presentation from visiting professionals in the teaching, legal, hospitality
and human resource management professions,” said James “Jamo” Myles, the Youth
Services Coordinator responsible for Career Camp.

The focus was chosen because the
teens are on the verge of choosing subjects for their external examinations and
the sooner these young people focus on a career, the better their choices of
subjects will be as they make their high school class selections.

“When I assumed my position as
president of Rotary Sunrise, I committed my year to the youth of the Cayman
Islands,” said Rotary Sunrise President Michael. “By supporting this Career
Camp, it is the beginning of how we are assisting with empowering and preparing
the youth of these beautiful Islands for a future that is full of hope and
bright with promise.”

The Government’s Sizzling Summer
Series Camps is for youths from ages 12 to 18. It is part of the Youth Services
Unit’s effort to implement the National Youth Policy through the empowerment of
young people.
