Over the years Flow has given many young St. Lucians the opportunity to benefit from real-life work experience and become part of the Flow Family through fulltime employment and by way of in-house, work-training apprenticeship programs.
This week the company demonstrated, once again, that is committed to delivering on what it considers to be a vital part of its mission, namely to improve lives by giving back to the community, and by supporting the nation’s schools and the development of the youths.
Last week a group of former St. Joseph’s Convent students are currently employed with Flow paid a visit to their alma mater at the invitation of the school. While there they met with the form one students and had a chat with them during which they encouraged the students to take their education seriously and start exploring options for furthering their studies and choosing their careers. The theme of the session was “She Believed That She Could so She did.”
The students welcomed the visitors and listened with rapt attention as the Flow team discussed with them the importance of having the right attitude in their quest to be professionals, and explained why they must be willing to make sacrifices in order to achieve their dreams. They were also given useful tips on how to develop perseverance and personal discipline and how to go about making a decision on a career path.
It was a highly interactive and fun-filled discussion and the students said they enjoyed every minute of it. Several of them said they found it to be quite inspiring and thought the ideas discussed would be a great help to them.
Flow St. Lucia Marketing & Communications Executive, Shermalyn Sidonie-John was also part of the visiting Flow team. She said they thoroughly enjoyed their time with the students
and look forward to representing Flow on similar initiatives as part of the company’s commitment to supporting youth development and education.
“Like the principal and teachers, we envision a nationwide school community where students excitedly explore and confidently pursue careers after wisely choosing their subjects. As a company, Flow was proud to be given this opportunity to build upon our long history of developing young minds by supporting initiatives geared towards helping them be mentally, intellectually and emotionally prepared for employment in today’s economy,” said Sidonie-John.
