St. Maarten – Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Silveria Jacobs met with Dan Marmar and Zahira Marmar-Hilliman of Participant Sxm on Friday.

Participant Sxm presented a proposal to the Minister regarding the training of top students to teach younger children and to assist them in doing so at the schools. This would be done in a pilot program in three community schools which would empower youth to make tangible positive changes to their neighborhoods and foster and celebrate excellence and achievement among particularly male secondary school students.

The program will give youngsters the opportunity to pass on knowledge as well as share their passion for a particular topic, subject or activity. In addition this is a program that has proven to build both the students and the teachers. With this initiative Participant Sxm wants to teach responsibility and reciprocity within the community and give younger students honorable role models.

Minister Jacobs supports this program as it is in keeping with her vision to promote youth in leadership.
