The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community (SVGCC) has embarked on a month-long wellness initiative. The initiative, dubbed “Wellness Is Wealth”, encourages Vincentians to be mindful of their physical, emotional and mental state by actively seeking wellness enrichment experiences. As part of its “Wellness Is Wealth” initiative we will host a series of free Zoom fitness sessions on March 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th, 2021. Director of the SVGCC, Nigel Scott, in commenting on the initiative, stated that it was a very timely venture given the global confinement of people’s movement and activities as a result of the pandemic.
Communications and Marketing Manager of the SVGCC, B. Tedra Kirby, also commented “We wanted to explore ways we can truly engage our community that extends beyond the walls of the college. We sought a positive platform that allowed for the safe sharing of a common space with our students, staff, their families and friends, as well as the public. We know the negative effects of the current pandemic, so one of the many ways we’ve chosen to counter is by encouraging an attitude of wellness through these Zoom sessions, as well as the other aspect of the initiative which entails wellness support offered by our Counseling Department”.
The SVGCC takes this opportunity to acknowledge Islandwide Fitness Bootcamp, Be Fit Movement, Wild Thing Wellness and DS Fitness Club for their willingness to partner with us on this wellness initiative.
Alexa DeRiggs, certified yoga instructor and owner of Wild Thing Wellness, with over 300 yoga training hours, expressed that yoga is not just flexibility and strength within the body, but also within the mind. She will lead the Zoom session on March 27th, 2021.
The Zoom sessions are: March 6th - aerobics with Lindon James (Be Fit Movement), March 13th - cardio-kickboxing with Keyon Constance (Islandwide Fitness Bootcamp), March 20th - aerobics with Dilonie Sam (DS Fitness Club) and March 27th yoga with Alexa DeRiggs (Wild Thing Wellness).

We encourage you to also wear your mask when using public transportation or any other instances where maintaining physical distancing poses a challenge.
Help us to help you...wear your mask when visiting the SVGCC.
Classes at our Division of Arts, Sciences and General Studies (DASGS) and Division of Technical and Vocational Education (DTVE) will go fully virtual effective Monday January 4th 2021 via the college's eLearning platform.
Since the start of the academic year 2020/21 in September 2020 the SVGCC has adopted a blended-learning approach for many of our courses. Our faculty and many of our students are familiar with our eLearning platform. In fact our platform has been functional for several years, allowing students to successfully attend classes, submit assignments and collaborate online.
Classes are not postponed.
The continuation of the education of our students as well as their health are top priorities and we have embraced the technology to ensure that we are still able to educate the next generation of leaders of St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
