This structure for young people was long awaited in the territory. It is now available to young people from Saint-Martin, in the premises of the former Evelyna HALLEY school, rue de Hollande, in Marigot.

A team of 5 people is employed within the structure, managed by Maggy Gumbs, who would like to thank the local missions of Martinique Centre and Guadeloupe who welcomed the St. Martin team for their immersion. The premises are particularly welcoming, they have been decorated by the artists of the associations Wall’Art and Madtwoz Family, a way to welcome young people in a dynamic and colorful space.

In his speech, President Louis Mussington praised the commitment of all those who have worked hard in recent months to make this major achievement for the territory a reality, underlining the determination of the RSM-A majority to work for the youth of the territory.

The president did not fail to salute the memory of President Aline Hanson, who had obtained from the State the creation of the last local mission in France. A file taken in hand by Annick Petrus in 2020, with the support of the former DGA of the Human pole Jocelyn Elouin and Corine Pineau responsible for the service Reception, Information, Orientation of the Collectivity, strongly involved with the local youth, these last 20 years.

The local mission of Saint-Martin has now become a reality. It is a local tool entirely dedicated to young people aged 16 to 25 in search of support. They are invited to come and find out about the existing training, employment and mobility assistance schemes.

In conclusion, President Louis Mussington quoted Nelson Mandela’s famous quote “Each generation has the opportunity to remake the world”. A note of hope that young people are invited to seize with the support of the new local mission.
