Minister of Youth, Sports, and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard congratulated the more than 80 graduates of his Ministry’s Youth Leaders Certification Programme, during the standing-room-only Graduation Ceremony at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Hall, on June 28, 2018. The group was the third cohort to complete the 16-week course for the 2017-2018 session. Minister Pintard pointed out that they interact with thousands of young Bahamians in a positive way, “seeing the future” when they look at the youth. He pointed out that there was “a lot at stake” and a need for “talented and fully-trained young leaders” to address the issue that Bahamian youth face on a daily basis. “It is only fair that we give them the requisite skills; so they could properly help to mold those young lives,” he said.
