Franz George: Diamond, St. Vincent
Franz is currently a member of the National Integrity Action (NIA), an anti-corruption NGO in Jamaica. He is also the co-founder and current President of the NIA’s youth arm called the Integrity Action Movement (IAM). Through the NIA, Franz has been working on promoting Transparency, Accountability and Integrity in Governance and Leadership amongst young people and he has engaged heads of state in Jamaica and overseas, including Hon. Andrew Holness, Prime Minister of Jamaica and Her Excellency Dalia Grybauskaite, President of Lithuania.
Franz was also recently appointed to the Commonwealth Youth Council’s (CYC) Caribbean and Americas Standing Committee where he serves as Deputy Chairman and coordinator for St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and Dominica. Through that committee he has taken part in Commonwealth and CARICOM meetings on Youth Development and he is looking forward for his work to assist with youth development and empowerment across the Caribbean. Most of all, Franz hopes to assist with youth development in St. Vincent and help to connect youth to opportunities that are offered through the Commonwealth and other organisations that exist regionally and internationally. When he completes his studies and returns to St. Vincent, Franz hopes to start his own NGO, which would focus on youth empowerment through leadership and education.
