Students and young people from across the island are being invited to participate in a development and leadership programme which the organisers have billed The Success Conference.

It is designed by Dr Velma May Brown-Hamilton to equip students with the mindset to succeed, while providing targeted mentorship and exposure to a range of career options. Using the theme ‘You are in the Winner’s Circle’, the seminar is set for the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown, Kingston this Friday, March 31, beginning at 9:00 am.

Dr Brown-Hamilton, who is president of the Children Upliftment and Restoration Foundation, spoke to the positioning of the event and the role it plays in larger discussions and actions toward sustainable development, particularly through education, attitude adjustments, and employment.

“An event of this nature can only help in the development of appropriate value systems and behaviours for our country on many levels. The minds of our youngsters need to be molded more than ever, as there are growing distractions that are very attractive but even more so, destructive to their respective futures. Programmes that encourage being gainfully engaged are a must for any society that has a vision for sustainable development,” she said.


To achieve the desired impact, Brown-Hamilton has a slate of local and international guest speakers lined up. They will include: minister of Faith Center Ministries in Florida, Bishop Henry Fernandez; United Kingdom-based, young Internet income entrepreneur at Caribbean Linkage, Shernorva Abiona; international speaker from Dr Otan’s Breakthrough Insiders Club, Dr Stan Harris; chief executive officer, Massy Gas Products, Rohan Ambersley; director, Aim Educational Services, Nicole Campbell; state minister in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Floyd Green; principal finance officer in the Ministry of Health, Michael Maragh; chief executive officer, Internet Income, Alicia Lyttle; executive director of Caribbean Maritime Institute, Dr Fritz Pinnock; and general manager, Jamaica Mortgage Bank, Courtney Wynter.

To register, those interested may contact Mrs Tamieka Scott-Walters at (876)547-4204 or (876)824-5384 as well as via email at childrenupliftment@gmail.com.
