QCT celebrated the launch of QCT Network’s country chapter in Trinidad and Tobago (Trinbago) on March 14, 2023, during the Commonwealth Week. The launch was hosted by the British High Commissioner in Trinidad and Tobago Ms Harriet Cross. The Trinbagonian country chapter is hosted under QCT’s Network of young leaders and is among three newly launched country chapters in Kenya, Pakistan and Trinbago. These country chapters are a unique opportunity to identify, encourage and connect unseen and unheard young leaders for collective action and change in their communities.
The Trinbagonian chapter is currently being chaired by Benedict Bryan and co-Chaired by Kurba Maria Quetelle. Speaking during this launch, Benedict Bryan said,
“We believe this chapter will enable on the ground support to young leaders in Trinbago and provide greater opportunities for peer learning and collaboration across organisations, in-country and across the region.”Benedict Bryan, chair of the Trinbago country chapter speaking during this launch

On behalf of QCT, Benedict Bryan joined in celebrating 2023 as the Commonwealth year of the youth and expressed QCT’s pledge to remain devoted to supporting the work of young leaders across the Commonwealth.
