Program for emerging youth leaders of Melanesia

18 July 2016

Suva (Fiji Times) -  TWENTY youth leaders from Pacific countries, including Fiji, will be part of the Pacific Community's Emerging Youth Leaders of Melanesia program.

A joint media alert from the Pacific Community and the Melanesian Spearhead Group Secretariat said the program is designed to develop strong youth leaders and equip them to lead development in the Melanesian sub-region.

Over a span of two years, 20 youth leaders from Fiji, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu will attend six week-long workshops, which will include on-site visits to work places and agencies.

The youths will also learn about their own leadership potential as well as the successful Solomon Islands [email protected] program model which can be adapted and implemented in their own countries in future.

The program will be opened at the MSG headquarters in Port Vila, Vanuatu on Tuesday.
