United Way of Trinidad and Tobago Puts Youth First

United Way of Trinidad and Tobago Puts Youth First

In honor of International Youth Day, we salute United Way of Trinidad and Tobago’s Uniquely Worthy program. This innovative program has reached more than 600 youth throughout the country and has provided hands-on self-awareness and personal empowerment training to give the young participants essential tools to be successful in life.

Participants ages 14 – 17 were chosen by the participating schools. The workshops encouraged youth who are already achieving some academic success but need some support in their personal development. Students were given an experience that most would not be exposed to in their daily lives – that of being invited to a hotel, for a great workshop experience and throughout the day were encouraged to express themselves freely.

The experience and workshops offered by Uniquely Worthy afforded the students a sense of purpose and ability to maximize their full potential.
