Barbados Launches with Week of Training

Future youth members gathered for the training led by Ignitus Board member Jerry Rudoff and Training Director Terry Allen Jones. Armed with the knowledge of how to proceed, the group took its first steps towards building a youth network on the island by training 40 students in two schools on the YCW program.  At the end of the day, trainers had the opportunity to meet with the school principals to explain the site model and what they should expect to happen over the next couple of months. They expressed enthusiastic support of the program.
