Education

YOUTH development organisation, The Voice Inc. as part of its contribution to the High Performance Sport’s Talent Identification programme, has donated 300 of its youth magazine, the Clean Generation Tok, to the participants and their schools.
The presentation was made to the High Performance Sports PNG performance manager, Cornelius Papau during the ‘Be the Influence Team Leaders Workshop for the Emerging Talent Scholarship Programme’, on International Youth Day onSaturday at the Taurama Aquatic Centre.
On receiving the magazines, Papau said:“Such commitments help assist the talent programme when it’s still in its initial stage and also its participations to nurture as positive role models and active individuals who will be read to face challenges not just in sport but also in their personal lives.”
The Clean Generation Tok, is a youth magazine and an initiative of The Voice Inc’s Clean Generation campaign aimed at promoting and inspiring young people to be purposeful, virtuous and responsible so that they can rise and lead with character and integrity.
The magazine has its share of health, business, personal development and reviews on important key PNG documents with an emphasis on sustainable future and highlighting the Sustainable Development Goals.
The magazine has had three issues, distributed to schools in NCD, Lae and Goroka.
Urith Toa, communications and marketing officer for The Voice Inc. on presenting the magazines, said it was a great opportunity to be able to speak into the lives of PNG’s athletic talents and this is just one of the ways we are encouraging a generation to rise.
“We’ve noted a challenge with informing a generation, in the information era, as young people are exposed to so much media mainstream and social media.
“There is an important and urgent need to be able to discern and filter what are facts and what information will add value, inspire and help a young person’s mind grow,” Toa said.
