Youth Day service in Grand Turk
The Turks and Caicos Islands Youth Week began with a service attended by Acting Governor Anya Williams, in the Revival Faith Centre in Grand Turk last Sunday.
The service was also attended by members of the House of Assembly, educators, civil leaders and community representatives. Youth Week takes place 22-28 September 2013.
The acting governor brought remarks and reminded the congregation the importance of the theme for this year's Youth Week "Invest In Me: I'm the Key". This year’s theme was inspired by a submission from Andrico Lightbourne and Travez Parker of the Shining Stars Primary School, Providenciales.
Williams took the opportunity to say a special thank you to all of the educators, church, civic and youth leaders around the country that make the development of the youth in the TCI their everyday priority. Seeing youth as the key to the future of the Turks and Caicos Islands, the acting governor promised to work along with these groups to help to develop more new and innovative programs and opportunities for the youth in the TCI.
