Applications open for Youth Ambassadors

Aiming to make Cayman a better place for youth

The Youth Services Unit is inviting young people to apply to become Cayman Islands Youth Ambassadors.

Applications are open to all young Caymanians between the ages of 18 and 27, whether individuals are just starting college on island, starting work, returning from college or still studying overseas.

The application submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 15.

Three males and three females will be chosen to form the Ambassador Corp.

The successful candidates should be able to represent local youth when on school breaks or at weekend conferences. The program is intended to prepare them for present and future leadership roles in the Cayman Islands.

Citing the pledge of the National Youth Policy Task Force, Youth Services coordinator James Myles said people’s greatest responsibility in this life is to be good ancestors. “We are the dynamic link between the past and future.

The aim is quite straightforward: to enjoy what we have inherited, and to make the Cayman Islands a better place for the youth of today and for those of generations to come,” he said.
