Minister of Youth and Sports Visits Youth Challenge Program Participants
Today, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Rodwell Ferguson, visited the young men hoping to positively transform their lives through the Mountain Pine Ridge Youth Challenge. The 22 young men from across the country have been taking part in various activities geared at instilling discipline and embracing self-motivation. The goal of the program is to positively modify the youths’ behavior and provide them with skills to be deployed to government institutions such as the police department, the Belize Defense Force., or the Belize Coast Guard. During the visit, Ferguson sat down with one of the participants who highlighted the positive impact the program has had on him so far. Here’s a snippet of that exchange.
