Youth Money Talk Hackathon & the case for Respect in Jamaica

Primary tabs

Just yesterday, August 26, 2015, I was a part of an audience of some 500 plus youth leaders at a Forum hosted by the Ministry of Youth and Culture with the main presenter being Minister of Finance, the Hon. Peter Phillips. The event promised to provide a platform for the involvement of our youth at the decision making table as a critical part of Jamaica’s success and economic growth. I was intrigued as I've long held the view that engaging with and encouraging participatory strategies for our youth can yield meaningful results.
