By BBN Staff: The United States Embassy in Belize is highlighting Public Affairs alumni.
For the month of November, the embassy is putting the spotlight on Stephen Alexander Whyte.
Stephen, an alumni of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, has been an educator for over 16 years and is the current administrator of St. Agnes Anglican School in Belize.
Stephen was awarded the Fulbright Fellowship for the year 2017-2018, which enabled him to spend a year at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College where he engaged in experiential, hands-on, and distinguished leadership trainings. He was also able to partake in leadership training in Washington DC at the Global Leadership Conference, Syracuse University, and Emory University.
These provided great networking opportunities with leading researchers and practitioners.
Since returning home, Stephen has conducted professional development training in communication, literacy, and classroom management for educators both in Belize City and Belmopan.
He has also established and continues to grow a non-profit after-school assistance program, Collet Division Reading and Tutoring Program, for students from vulnerable communities in Belize City.
Due to networking during the fellowship, Stephen was able to gain support from members of the Vanderbilt community as well as foreign NGOs to assist him in his community outreach endeavors in Belize.
Most recently, he has garnered the support of the organization Optimist International to establish the very first Optimist club in Belize. The goal of the Optimist club is to provide support for at-risk students in the areas of health, education, and community involvement.
Stephen hopes to continue building his community and to contributing to the development of students and teachers in Belize’s educational system.
Stephen hopes that his work inspires those he works with to give of themselves, and to be a part of the solution to the ills of our communities. He hopes his work impacts youths positively, and that they too will in turn give back to their communities when they are in a position to do so.
