Maxton R. Scotland comes from a cosmopolitan West Indian and British background. He spent his adolescence on the Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Currently, Maxton holds a Master of Science in Security, from the London Metropolitan University.
Maxton enrolled in the UK Armed Forces where he performed a plethora of roles, most notably, a linguist for 6 years. Through this medium, he harnessed the requisite training and skill(s) needed to understand global youths, across cultural and language barriers.
In addition to the challenges presented by promoting a culture of peace and mutual understanding, that such experience has instilled within me a greater appreciation of both differences and commonalities of global youths.
With a passion for youth development, Maxton has enthusiastically supported the youths which take the rightful places at the decision-making table. Because every young person needs its champion, he is actively involved in the social development of young people the world over.
Maxton is no stranger to the international stage. He’s renowned for his belief in the empowerment of young people through intergenerational interaction, at the leadership level.
In recognition of its global leadership efforts, Maxton was nominated for the position of United Nations Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth.
