Whilst it is not a flowery path, entrepreneurship is pertinent to the development of our country. Thus, we hope to inspire and/or inculcate in our fellow Guyanese, the strength to awaken their inner entrepreneurs over the duration of the week.
The piece was written by Giselle Mc Rae and performed by Overtly Lethal, in hopes of conveying the difficulties experienced by entrepreneurs, who remain unwavering in the face of the numerous adversities thrown their way. The piece serves, not to invoke fear, but to showcase that entrepreneurship isn’t all glamorous as it is stereotyped.

Music therapy is the use of music to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of a group or individual. It employs a variety of activities, such as listening to melodies, playing an instrument, drumming, writing songs, and guided imagery. (Dr. Annie Heidersheit)
Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words.

The Youth Ambassadors cohort of Guyana 2019 extends a Happy 51st Republic Day to all guyanese citizens at home and abroad 🇬🇾🎉
On October 31st, and November 1st 2020, the Youth Ambassadors 2019 cohort facilitated a Youth Conference themed, “Be Youthful, Be Empowered”. This conference mobilized youth from 10 secondary schools in various parts of the country and focused on areas such as, Oil and Gas, Business Entrepreneurship, Project Planning with an emphasis on Youth Advocacy and Emotional Intelligence/ Mental Health. This project was organized as a follow-on activity subsequent to their U.S Exchange program. The urgent need to circulate information related to those topics was recognized and therefore, the YA cohort felt it necessary that the youth population become more engaged in such discussion while educating them on opportunities within the various sectors. These sessions were also crafted to provide lifelong skills to its participants. Special thanks to our speakers: Mr. Keon Smith, Ms. Raiza Khan and members of the 2019 cohort who did a phenomenal job at presenting and answering questions from the audience. This conference was a major success and was followed by a sustainability plan; implemented to keep our participants engaged and to guarantee that they apply the knowledge gained.
We do hope this season brings you all a bit of joy and prosperity. 🌲✨
Youth Ambassadors who visited Virginia were immersed in numerous enrichment, cultural and educational activities. To conclude their exchange, they visited the Orange County High School where they met students and faculty while learning about high school life in the U.S. They also visited the Home and now Museum( James Madison Montpelier) of the Late President, James Madison, and later that day performed dance, song, and poetry in a Cultural Extravaganza at Downtown Mall. An Award ceremony facilitated by the University of Virginia - Center for Politics and Democracy, presented each ambassador with certificates of participation by the staff and coordinators of the "Host City" in the presence of their host families.

The aim of this survey is to investigate the effects the current pandemic has on Guyanese students preparing to sit the Caribbean Examinations Council’s exams. This is an initiative of the Youth Ambassadors Alumni who themselves are candidates preparing to sit the exams. We vehemently wish to establish that this survey is in no way is a product of the US Embassy or a product of the Caribbean Examination Council. The information gained from this survey will be used strictly for edification purposes and to shed light on the constraints and impacts of Covid-19 on Education and by extension, the council's decision to move forward with holding exams in July 2020.
Happy Birthday Ms. Aretha Majeed,
This program is yours, your baby
That’s what we heard
All of the amazing things they said
We now believe every word
You went above and beyond for them and you’re doing the same for us
I’m sure it isn’t easy but you keep on doing so much
Working hard with a smile on your face
100% genuine, nothing fake
Your personality illuminates whatever space you grace
You’re exuberant and that we appreciate
When we heard the comments “Guyana is well prepared, and they’re so Extra”
We realized how much you care and how God blessed us
All jokes aside you know when to draw the line
We play but work needs to be done and on time.
Just as a mother nurtures her child
You cared for us too
You gave us the light
So we could bloom
And now we're tracing the sky with our heights
When they said the program was your baby
They were definitely right
I speak for all of us when I say we’re lucky to have met you
This program is your baby therefore we are too
Birthday Greetings are extended to the wonderful woman who helped in making our dream as being apart of the Youth Ambassadors Program 2019 a reality. ❤
