Dear Julliette, Can we share

Dear Julliette,

Can we share this with our younger colleagues outside the Pulsewire forum?

Most definitely

Hi Amie,

Please share with your younger colleagues. Be sure that the deadline has not passed. They may have to investigate the contact for the Commonwealth Youth Programme regional office to apply.

I cannot recall which country the office is based in Africa. The details should be on the commonwealth website.

Have a wonderful weekend!
