Youth empowerment officer named

Camille Angel

A new youth empowerment officer at the Cayman Islands government’s Youth Services Unit will next school year be teaching high school students about managing finances.

Camille Angel, 26, who began working with the unit in early June, will teach the “Financial Awareness Now” program at Clifton Hunter High School. The program focuses on financial tips and other life skills.

According to a press release, the program will not only focus on monetary wealth, but also on the value of giving back to the community.

Ms. Angel will also serve as the main liaison between community youth programs, the Youth Services Unit and overseas social media accounts.

Earlier this month, Ms. Angel helped to host the Youth Summit, and she has begun to acquaint herself with various local youth groups and organizations to learn how the unit can better assist them.

Ms. Angel, who has a professional background in marketing and communications, said, “I like that in this role, I can give back.”
