DIA Summit 2020 takes Jamaican youth to another level

Strong partnerships to spur youth development in the Caribbean

The Trust for the Americas in partnership with the Institute of Law and Economics (ILE) and the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Information of Jamaica is launching the Youth DIA Summit during Youth Month 2020 in Jamaica. 

During the Youth DIA Summit, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to REFRESH their business skills, REFOCUS their business strategies, and earn a REWARD by putting together a monetization strategy. We expect 500 participants to be empowered through the 3-weekends' worth of hands-on online training to use social media and digital tools to learn and earn online. 

In 2015, The Trust for the Americas created the program "Democratizing Innovation in the Americas (DIA)". DIA is a regional initiative that encourages innovation and empowers new generations through access to advanced technology, creativity accelerators, collaboration spaces, personalized study programs, tutorials, and financial resources for social and economic enterprises. To date, the DIA program has benefited more than 5,000 people directly and has incubated more than 160 social and technological innovation projects in Belize, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Colombia, Mexico, and Panama.
