10 hours

Students will be exposed to the benefits of teamwork and partnerships, with examples of local, regional and international institutions and businesses. Local examples will include the Antigua and Barbuda Trade and Labour Union, the Antigua and Barbuda Workers Union and the Antigua Commercial Bank. The lectures will disassemble the myths and legacies of the “divide and rule” indoctrinations of our enslavement past. Such indoctrinations were so thorough and complete that through the generations we have coined and internalized the notion that “partnership is leakyship”. The lectures will prove the contrary: Partnership is Powership. All YEA students will know the National Anthem.
