By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On April 21, the Second Road Safety Project, financed by the Caribbean Development Bank and executed through the Ministry of Economic Development, concluded a 5-day training.

workshop on presentation skills and techniques to new workshop facilitators of the Belizean Youth for Road Safety (BYRS). 

The training was facilitated by BYRS Master Trainers with oversight by the international consulting firm Youth for Road Safety (YOURS). 

Participants were from the Corozal, Orange Walk, Belize, and Cayo districts.

BYRS is a registered NGO consisting of young individuals who are passionate about road safety. 

The objective is to develop a level of self-sustainability in order to enhance the advocacy for road safety in Belize.

The new facilitators were taught the fundamentals of human learning, peer education, and how to develop presentation materials and conduct workshops, among other things. 

They also had practical exercises to apply what they learned theoretically and were required to develop and present road safety messages to students from Wesley College and Excelsior High School. 

The master trainers also carried out two demonstration workshops at Maud Williams High School.

The 8 new facilitators are now equipped to deliver road safety messages to peers, students, and at other forums. 

The 6 master trainers who facilitated the workshop were also recertified by YOURS. 

Dr. Osmond Martinez, Chief Executive Officer for the Ministry of Economic Development, delivered the closing remarks and distributed the certificates to the newly trained facilitators and master trainers.

BYRS will host other sessions on writing funding proposals and learning about fiscal and organizational management.
