To ALL BELIZEANS — Re: THE QUEEN’S YOUNG LEADERS!
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme is a recently-established initiative for inspirational young leaders across BELIZE and the wider Commonwealth to get involved. Established by the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust in partnership with the Royal Commonwealth Society and Comic Relief, and in honour of HM The Queen’s 60 years of service to the Commonwealth, the programme is LOOKING FOR EXCEPTIONAL 18-29 YEAR-OLDS to support them in their life-changing work.
The 4-year programme aims to discover, celebrate and support young people from every Commonwealth nation. These young people will be chosen for having transformed their own lives and the lives of those around them, despite the challenges they may have faced along the way.
Young people across the Commonwealth can BE nominated (eg. By a Ministry or NGO) or they can actually nominate themselves. Either way can be done at the link: WWW.QUEENSYOUNGLEADERS.COM. The more nominations BELIZE can submit, the better chance our youngsters have at being chosen.
If chosen, they get the CHANCE TO COME TO LONDON for a brief residency session that will enable them to network with their peers and others as well as to promote and support their work in Belize. They will also have the opportunity of receiving the actual award from the Queen herself.
DEADLINE for nominations is OCTOBER 10TH, 2014 so….TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE! For more information, persons can visit:www.queensyoungleaders.com.
