Youth Council Leader Talks Innovative Ways to Get Youngsters Involved

Dominique Noralez

Acting president of the National Youth Council of Belize, Dominique Noralez, also participated in the forum. Despite the fact that Noralez sits as the youth rep on the Commission, in her presentation today, she says that it is one of the Sustainable Development Goals that will be addressed at the upcoming World Youth Conference. The youth make up twenty-four percent of the total population, which is over ninety thousand persons, and they must be aware of HIV/Aids and best sexual health practices.

“Although we have all this knowledge, people are still getting infected. So things like these and this age group is a very good target group to come to because we are the ones who will be here in the next few years and we have to raise the generation after. So forums like these that target specific youth leaders that will spread information is very important. I’ve been in this sexual productive health field since I was fifteen years old so I know a lot, but the innovative practices they are using. Like today they have a cabbage demonstration that showed how easily it is to get infected. Just a couple minutes ago, there was an internet game answering questions on the aids situation in Belize. So the innovative things I think is what I learned today; taking away the innovative learning tools.”
