Ralph Cantave is a young writer, who was born and raised in the beautiful island of St. Martin. He is known for his representation and advocacy of youth on the island.

Dr. Gittens, SCELL Director stated: SCELL is proud to partner with Cantave and Youth Professional Network (YPN), in hosting a Males Empowerment session at the University of St. Martin in mid-October to help with the enrollment of males at the institution. Just a few weeks ago SCELL organized a corporate challenge to local business to raise scholarship funds for Women’s Island Network and Youth Professional Network, both organizations that SCELL founded to support the St. Martin community with scholarship assistance for women and men ages 18 and up to pursue degrees at USM/UVI to earn an Associates, Bachelors or Master’s degree. The challenge was successful based on the contributions from WIB, Telem Group, Discount Furniture and the Port of St. Maarten with their generous support, SCELL will be awarding 9 scholarships to men and women to attend USM/UVI in addition to the Cantave Global Leaders’ Summit abroad scholarship.

The session will be focused on the importance of manhood, responsibility and commitment to self, country and education. The goal is to have more young men on the island be more productive and play the active role in the development of St. Maarten. Cantave plans to use his experience from the Global Summit to educate the male attendees on how to be progressive and a direct assest to the island of St. Martin, supporting the image of the university, SCELL and its programs.

Cantave & SCELL, is aiming towards bringing in more males to USM, to be able to achieve their full potential with a sound education. Complimentary copies of Mr. Cantave’s recent book, “ Words of Change, ”will be handed out compliments of SCELL.
