Barbados Youth Development Council (BYDC)
The BYDC is the national umbrella organisation for youth groups on the island. Its primary focus is on youth development.
In an effort to ensure that Muslim female youth have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to national youth events and by extension strengthen our involvement in wider youth development, the BAML became a member of the Barbados Youth Development Council (BYDC). Resultantly, we are able to nominate suitable Muslim females to undertake positions on BYDC's Executive Team. We are pleased to share our Executive Team Member, Miss Saamiya Cumberbatch currently holds the post of Public Relations Officer for the BYDC.
