The Montserrat Civil Service Association (MCSA) is hosting a series of celebratory events in commemoration of Youth Month 2019. This year, the union will celebrate under the theme ‘Transforming Education’.
To kick off the series of events, members and friends of the MCSA worshiped at the Church of God of Prophecy on Sunday, September 08, 2019. This coming Saturday, September 14th, the union will host a live panel discussion on Radio Montserrat where youth will explore the topic; ‘Increasing the Awareness; Your Union and You.’ This discussion will seek to create further awareness within youth in the Montserrat community as to the history, purpose and future of the Trade Union movement.
Additionally, and in keeping with the theme of knowledge sharing, the MCSA will embark on an ‘Information Awareness Day’ for both members and prospective members alike.
On September 17th, youth and executive members of the association will be engaged in activities to further educate the public on all things union. This will include visits to the Montserrat Community College, the Montserrat Secondary School, as well as Government departments sharing the good news of the Union movement to one and all.
Finally, and to end the series of events, the union will host a two-day Youth Retreat during the period, September 18-19 to be held at the Royal Montserrat Police Service Conference Room.
Our Retreat will be open to all youth between the ages of 18-35 years. The agenda will include topics such as:
o Benefits of the Trade Union,
o The Grievance Procedure,
o The Complaints Commission,
o Youth and Wealth Management
o Professionalism in the Workplace and so much more……!
Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with Top Public Officers during a panel discussion on the topic ‘Youth Leadership for a brighter Montserrat.’ All participants will receive an MCSA Bundle containing Union Information packs, as well as MCSA tokens. These are initiatives led by the Montserrat Civil Service Association in collaboration with the Department for Community, Youth Affairs and sports in recognition of Youth Month 2019.
