University of Guyana will be represented at the One World Youth Project summer training in Kosovo.
The University of Guyana is one of six Universities that will be represented for the first time at the One World Youth Project summer training conference in the European nation of Kosovo.
One World Youth Project is aimed at linking classrooms around the world through video technology and empowering students to teach one another about the changing world through culture.
University of Guyana final year students Leonard Ryan Hoppie and Onika Stellingburg were selected for a 3 semester fellowship to serve as project managers on the Turkeyen Campus.
After the training the two students along with a team will visit several high schools to educate and empower other young people about the different cultures in society but not only in Guyana.
Guyana’s One World Youth Project Manager, Leonard Ryan Hoppie intends to use the knowledge gained at the end of the training as a springboard in helping young people realize their dreams while believing in themselves.
Onika Stellingburg is currently studying Environmental Studies at the University of Guyana. She said at the training conference she plans to proudly promote her home country which is culturally rich given the ethnic makeup.
Over the weekend the two students will begin their trip to Kosovo. The summer One World Youth Project will bring together 12 young people from Universities in Guyana, Pakistan, Turkey, Kosovo and the United States.
