In March of this year the Mexican Embassy in collaboration with the University of Quintana Roo and Youth for the Future kicked off a Youth Leadership Development Training. The first sessions of the programme were carried out on March 22nd and 23rd of this year.

On Monday and Tuesday the second part of the training was carried out, this time in Chetumal, Quintana Roo. This section dealt with Youth Leadership and Team Building.

“Estamos muy contentos porque el 28 de Mayo concluyo un taller de liderazgo para jóvenes en Chetumal Quintana Roo en México, donde cincuenta jóvenes Beliceños participaron en este programa, como lo menciono es un taller de liderazgo, que corresponde a la segunda parte de un curso que inicio el 22 y 23 de Marzo en la ciudad de Belice. Este taller es un taller que ha sido organizado por la universidad de Quintana Roo junto con Youth for the Future de Belice en colaboración con la Embajada de México. Estamos muy contentos porque en este evento participaron líderes juveniles que proceden de distintas partes de Belice.”

The participants chosen came from diverse sports and cultural groups in the country. The training will not only provide youth empowerment but also an opportunity for youths to socialize with our Mexican counterparts.

“Le va a dar herramientas para poder formar redes sociales para poder interactuar con otros jóvenes y también le va a dar herramientas para organizar para llevar acabo eventos así como para propiamente para poder producir como líderes en sus comunidades. Este tipo de eventos van a continuar por eso hemos tratado de impulsar este tipo de iniciativas porque es muy importante para los jóvenes que puedan adquirir este tipo de capacitación y además la oportunidad de viajar a Chetumal porque eso les permite a conocer otro país e interactuar en un cambio cultural con estudiantes y con otra cultura como la que es el mexicano así que estamos atentos y felicitamos a eso jóvenes beliceños que participaron en ese taller y estamos esperando otras actividades con jóvenes aquí en Belice por parte de la Embajada de Mexico.”

Participating from the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts were Wilfredo Petillo, Florilarima Wiltshire, Leopold Rosado, Vivianni Villanueva, Raymund Wu, Liannie Cardinas, Shanye Apolonio, Miguel Cawich, Vivian Lawrence, and Norma Martinez.
