By Aaron Humes: Perhaps just in time for the recent crime spike, the Department of Youth Services (DYS), under the Ministry of Youth, Sports and E-Governance, today announced that orientation had begun under the reorganized Belize National Youth Training Institutes.

These are an amalgamation of the Frank Lizama Training Institute, Gateway Youth Center, the Belize Youth Cadet Corps and the National 4-H Youth Development Center. They will be subdivided into four regional locations, two of which are open: Central Location: formerly Youth Cadet Corps campus – Mile 21 George Price Highway, and Western Location: formerly National 4-H Youth Development Center – Belmopan.

More than 160 applicants are part of the first cohort. Youth ages 14 to 29 will be able to enter the program and have access to services that will develop their skillsets in areas of front desk customer service, barbering, tourism, and agriculture, accompanied by three core subjects of literacy, math and financial literacy. Two enrichment courses have also been included, namely life skills and sports.

Kevin Cadle, acting director of DYS, shared, “The Belize National Youth Training Institutes are geared towards ensuring that young people have adequate skills and abilities.”

Kevin Bernard, Minister of Youth, added that the end goal is to ensure that everyone in the program becomes employable.
