A young Belizean and community developer is on his way to Russia.  According to Galen University, “19 year old Erwin Wills, a former Central American Youth Ambassador, is one of our new Eagles here at Galen University.”

He is admirably active in the community as he co-runs multiple chess clubs in Belmopan and has had numerous experiences representing Belize in the United States and Guatemala City since the age of 15.”

Erwin continues on this trend as he leaves for the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students (WFYS) that will unite 20,000 young leaders from 183 countries in Sochi, Russia.

The WFYS aims to consolidate the international youth community, strengthen international ties, as well as promote international and intercultural cooperation. One of the main goals of the upcoming Festival is shaping a common vision of the future by the young leaders from different countries, trying to articulate responses to the most pressing challenges of the generation. The main agenda is to encompass the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations.
