Empowerment of At-Risk Youth Participation Programme Project

Empowerment of At-Risk Youth has two components, Literacy and Cosmetology
Literacy component is in five locations at the Manning’s Boys Home in St Elizabeth, St Agustine Place of Safety in Clarendon, Sunbeam Boys Home, Eltham High School and Spanish Town High School in St Catherine. We are in partnership with the Jamaica Library Service and the Ministry of Education to enrich the reading component of the project in the three boys home mentioned.
The cosmetology component is in partnership with HEART/NTA and is conducted at Spanish Town High School and Eltham High School.
It showcased the talents of its students on 14 November 2019. It consisted of approximately 28 students who will graduate the project.
