Genevieve the Inaugural VI Fellow Serves as a Panelists for the Young People For National Summit


Genevieve had the distinct honor of representing the Virgin Islands on the national stage and the youth organization that a group of young people formed when was about 25 years old and persons were either in high school or college: Virgin Islands Youth Advocacy Coalition (VIYAC), at the Young People For (YP4) 2020 National Summit in New Orleans, Louisiana.


We set out with the vision to address the lack of civics in our schools, promotion of human rights, and decolonization. Next week, along with fellow panelists, one of whom is from our sister territory of Puerto Rico. We will present the matters surrounding the issues faced as territorial peoples and a way forward. CURES Young People for VI Project, my Fellowship project centered on decolonization of the curriculum to be highlighted as part of the way forward A special thank you to my team members and there’s certainly room for more persons to join this effort.
