Social Share

THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean and the Barbados Youth Action Programme (BYAP) yesterday teamed up to give a book boost to the St George Secondary School.
The school received 56 books, a donation that was coordinated by the BYAP and much appreciated by librarian of the school, Sonia Callender.
Books on black history and on the culture of the United States were among the books donated to the secondary school.
BYAP is an outreach group that seeks to dissuade youth from engaging in destructive and anti-social behaviour. The group, several of whose members paid their debt to society for crimes committed in the United States, now works to encourage young people.  
BYAP has received a small start-up grant from the Embassy and works closely with the United States Agency for International Development in addressing critical youth-related issues. (CT)
