Press Release:-Furniture and Electrical superstore, Courts St Lucia has joined a movement that seeks to elevate and empower youth around the island through a series of well planned community outreach programs coordinated by the organizers of the upcoming “Rise Up” festival featuring an all- star cast of Reggae and Caribbean headliners performing in the scenic town of Soufriere, St Lucia.

The superstore made the announcement during a LIVE radio call in program with “IWA” on Radio Caribbean International on Tuesday March 28th.  The “Rise Up” Community Program is the brain child of the organizers of the event who sought to create a platform for the collaboration of artistes and corporate leaders like Courts St Lucia who take their Corporate Social Responsibility.

The first outreach program was held on Wednesday March 29th at the Uptown Gardens Girls Centre. The session consisted of activities that integrated self-development and mentorship by special guest speakers Dr. Jackie Bird, Dr Stephen King, RCI’s Mareen Alexander, Representatives from Planned Parenthood and Journalist and well known Media Personality-Empress Jeanille.  

 As an event sponsor for Rise Up, Courts St Lucia has also pledged their support of the Rise Up Community Program and we will be working with their team to help facilitate and execute the various pro-social activities throughout St Lucia.

The young ladies at the Uptown Garden’s Girls’ centre were thrilled to be a part of this movement.

They spoke of their dreams of being professionals and were encouraged to work hard to achieve these dreams by Consultant Pathologist, Dr Stephen King. In the end, the young stars in a demonstration of appreciation for our time and words of encouragement showcased their talent through song and dance.

As a company that has played an integral role in the growth and development of the youth through our various Corporate Social Responsibility ventures, Courts St Lucia is indeed proud to be a part of this amazing movement.
