Young men to be honored for completing Youth Challenge Program

Posted: Tuesday, June 19, 2018. 1:11 pm CST.

BBN Staff:  In 2017, the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation and the Ministry of National Security introduced the Belize Youth Challenge (BYC) program.

The BYC is a two-year alternative program for males 15-17 years, who are at-risk of coming in contact with the law and/or having behavioral problems.

The program uses military principles to teach youths discipline, personal administration and teamwork, while developing their skills in vocational and academic areas.

On Thursday, June 21, twenty-two young men will be honored at a passing out ceremony for completing the first phase of the two-year program.

The event will be held at the ITVET Compound in Belize city at 10:00 a.m.

The program is a revision and upgrade of the National Youth Cadet Service Corps.

It is jointly managed by the Belize Defence Force and the Community Rehabilitation Department.
