56 public high school youth participated in our Youth Leadership Academy programme. 92% of youth entering the programme in 2023 reported a positive shift in their feelings of empowerment, relationship building skills, and communication skills after completing the first phase of the programme.

YLA has put my child on the right path and has kept his mind on track. I have learned a lot as a parent, and it has helped me a lot with parenting skills. YLA is important for the community. It provides structure for the children and that is a very important thing in Bermuda. The programme not only helps our children but it’s a life lesson for us as parents as well.
