GRENED will be providing leadership development training for students. The session began on September 17th with students learning how to present themselves in the world and to each other, and discovering characteristics about their companions under coaching guidance of Dr. Dessima Williams and the theatrical skill of Ms. Abena Vincent. In total, seven sessions on self-development and leadership are planned for this school term. Students will also be attached to a mentor and to opportunities for educational tours within institutions in the tri-island and beyond. The public is invited to volunteer to be a presenter and or a mentor.
This is the 22nd year of student support and scholarships in GRENED’s 26 years of existence. The organization continues to have graduates who have improved their own and family circumstances and who now exercise leadership as headmistress, physicians, public servants, entrepreneurs, farmers, diplomat and more.
The Grenada Education and Development Programme continues its mission to work with youth in rural communities, using education as a catalyst for individual and community empowerment, leadership and sustainable development. Students are welcome from both secondary and tertiary levels, who are in need of the assistance to achieve economic self-determination, social equality and poverty reduction. If you are a student wanting to emerge as a leader, GRENED welcomes your application. Students returning to the programme must maintain an average of 70.0 and must have attended the monthly leadership development and training seminars. A board governs the organization under bylaws. The Parent Committee allows parents, guardians and well-wishers to assist with selecting topics for seminars, fundraising and other activities.
