The Youth Empowerment Project is focused on mitigating risk factors that trigger criminal (and anti-social) behaviours at the individual, family, community and societal levels. Special emphasis is placed on young men and vulnerable groups – particularly children, at-risk youth and women. This project is being funded by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
