Brass—The Brass Federated Youth Council under the office of the student representative, Comr. Ayebainaemi Jeremiah Kpe has launched an educational programme in Okpoama in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The programme which is themed: Impacting a Golden Generation via Education—A Tool For Positive Social Change would be launched and hosted in three other communities across the three constituencies that make up the Brass Council Area in the coming weeks.
The programme which kicked off today in Okpoama primarily entailed visitation and sensitisation of students on the significance of education to the development of society across four schools in the community.
The schools include; Community Primary School I Isele-ama, Community Primary School II, Dikuma-ama, St Paul’s School I Okpoama, and St Paul’s School II Okpoama.
The educational outreach also included the presentation of writing and other schooling materials to students as encouragement.
Speaking to Mangrovepen.ng about the programme, Kpe said the idea has been in the offing because of the impact it would have on students.
He said as a Youth body, the Brass Federated Youth Council is partly responsible for the sensitisation of the youths and the generality of the public on the importance of education and its role in the development of society, in this case, the Brass LGA.
He expressed excitement about the programme and said the educational outreach is primarily to highlight the significance of education as well as to encourage students, especially in the Brass Area to be diligent in their studies.
He said, “I am super excited about this project particularly because it is a programme that the Brass Federated youth council has wanted to execute for a long time.
“This project is a brainchild of necessity. It was borne out of the need to highlight the importance of education and its role in transforming people, culture, and society for the better.
“We also wanted to encourage students within the LGA to be serious with their studies, so I think this is a good way to do that.”
