By Benjamin Flowers: Today, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) signed two agreements to support youth development by exposing them to Belize’s tourism sector and its opportunities through field trips.
The agreements, targeting at-risk youths in communities buffering cruise tourism activities within the city, were signed with Glenford “Timmy” Stamp and the Belize Audubon Society. Under the agreements,Mr. Stamp will host after school programs for inner city youths, while the BAS will collaborate with Mr. Stamp and the BTB to host the field trips.
Evan Tillett, Director of Tourism, BTB signed the agreements along with Mr. Stamp and Amanda Acosta, Executive Director, BAS.
“Cruise Tourism has far-reaching impacts on communities and the socio-economic fabric of destinations. It is also important for the tourism sector to support social programs that seek to provide positive opportunities for personal growth and education in communities like Belize City, which rely heavily on cruise tourism,” the BTB said, following the signing ceremony.
The BTB also said that Stamp’s afterschool programs will provide at-risk youths with constructive educational and life-skills programs which will allow them to not only immerse themselves in experiential activities, but also understand the role tourism plays as a key economic driver.
