By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Youth, Sports, and Transport, through the Department of Youth Services (DYS), recently completed the first-ever Girl Powered Leadership Camp.

80 participants divided in two groups completed the two-week camp held at the Youth with a Mission campus in Roaring Creek Village, Cayo District.

One group was for girls aged 14-17 and the second for young women aged 18-22.

According to the Government of Belize Press Office, each group attended a week consecutively.

“The Girl Powered Camp was implemented under the thematic pillars of courage, care and confidence aimed at increasing the participants’ capacity in leadership and overall wellbeing,” said the Press Office.

“The Department of Youth Services believes that the knowledge conveyed to these young women had transformative benefits as it boosted their confidence and will help them to become better versions of themselves and advance their roles as leaders in Belizean society,” said the Press Office.

“Sessions included leadership capacity building, public speaking, conflict management, sexual and reproductive health, bully prevention, navigating domestic and intimate partner violence, women’s and girls’ rights-policy, resume writing, self-defence training, and yoga and meditative practice, among others.”

The Press Office said the DYS expressed gratitude to Dominique Noralez, Caribbean Regional Representative for the Commonwealth Youth Council, who coordinated the program with all the agencies that facilitated the sessions.
