Saturday was the Launching of the PRODIGY Youth Group of Soufriere. The group, which has been together since January, now has 42 members. The National Youth Council, who has been supporting the group was very please to attend the activity which saw a number of energetic performances by group members and other youth of the Soufriere community .
It was my first official address as President of the National Youth Council of Dominica and I will always remember the moment. Despite the technical glitches and late start, it was an occasion to celebrate in the historic ruins/basketball court with the nearly hundred who attended. Although the crowd mainly gathered towards the end they enjoyed they afro-caribbean and hip hop dancing, singing and poetry.
For sure, there is much talent within the Soufriere bay and it is time that it was harnessed to showcase the positivity present in the Southern community. Hats off to Mr. Brown (group coordinator and mentor) and to Mr. Shandon Aubrey (group President). Looking to come back to Soufriere soon.
