Youth have often been termed the future of a nation and the key to a society’s development. It is therefore necessary to discuss the place of youth in contemporary society, the challenges faced and possible solutions.

The Conference on Parenting and Counselling: A Sociological and Diagnostic Evaluation of Youth in the Caribbean, hosted by the Sociology Unit, Department of Behavioural Sciences, from June 27-28, 9am-5pm, seeks to address issues facing youth, both locally and in the region. It will provide a space within which issues, trends, challenges and solutions can be discussed and evaluated.
