The scholarship sponsors an annual social event for present and past winners across the island currently attending high school, to meet to enjoy a day of fun and social engagement. It is our hope that by meeting others that share the common bond of being a YDS scholarship winner, lifetime friendships develop. And, as they progress into their careers, their journey will inspire them to help younger kids starting from similar circumstances as theirs. Our dream is to inspire a perpetual cycle of mentors and role models; the old helping/mentoring the young, and the young seeing what they can be, and what they can achieve, through the lives of the older.
This year's fun day was held at Chukka Eco-Adventure Outpost, located on the historic Good Hope Estate. Special thanks to Ms Melissa Terry, Manager of Chukka Foundation, Chukka Caribbean Adventures and the Chukka Eco-Adventure Outpost team for their partnership in making the day a success.
