Lending Youth a Hand

Ground is broken for a new Youth Centre which, when completed, will help put the Missouri Model of youth rehabilitation into practice in the Cayman Islands.

The week starting Monday, 26 March, GIS Spotlight breaks ground for youth rehabilitation, celebrates women entrepreneurs and gets high school athletes moving for a track meet round the corner.

For a long time, Cayman has sought to address youth issues with robust solutions. Now join us to witness the exciting new beginning for youth rehabilitation at the ground breaking for the specially designed CI Youth Centre in Fairbanks.

Hear principals explain the therapeutic emphasis behind the new programme featuring the successful Missouri Model for at-risk youth with emphasis on rehabilitation instead of punishment and imprisonment.

Next, come with us to a hall full of energy where women entrepreneurs and business owners pick up tips, advice and ideas for success and advancement.

Hear from the organisers and sponsors how this emerging area of business development gets an annual boost from the Department of Commerce and Investment's Inspiring Women Entrepreneurs conference. Visit local sponsors at their booths to view how they are helping.

Lastly, GIS Spotlight follows athletes in training for local events like the Inter Secondary Track and Field Championships at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex on 2 and 3 April.

See what is on offer for athletic children to improve their game and what coaches can provide those less athletic to shed their lethargy and get active.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you. The weekly programme airs on Cayman27 at 8 p.m. on Mondays and 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
