The Management and Staff of the National 4-H Youth Development Center in Belmopan hosted families and their trainees to an Annual Christmas Luncheon last Thursday at the George Price Center for Peace and Development. The luncheon hosted by the educational institution, which is based at the National Agriculture and Trade Show Grounds,  was organized to bring to a close the 2016 to 2017 training year where 5 students had completed the program and three received their certificates.

As part of the program, a video was shown of the activities at the 4-H center, which has an active curriculum with an agricultural base. In the video students were observed making full use of the rich humus soil and the staff in their supporting roles.

President of the National 4-H Center Raymond Usher was present to encourage both parents and students to continue moving forward.

“You must be able to give back to Society what you have received…go forth and multiply your talents,” he urged all.

The presence of officials from the Ministry of Education and the Department of Police at the 4-H luncheon last week underscored that the running of a Government subsidized agriculture program at the National 4-H Youth Development Center is a remarkable team effort. In his remarks on Thursday, Director Luke Ramos announced that the Police had assisted the Center under their ‘Youth Engaged in Agriculture,’ initiative. According to Ramos the Police was now showing an interest in introducing the nationally acclaimed Gang Resistance Education and Training Program at the school. The Department of Agriculture had also assisted the school during the 2016 to 2017 time period said Ramos.
