On Thursday evening the San Ignacio Police Formation held graduation ceremonies for 815 primary school students who have completed the Gang Resistance Education and Training GREAT Program. The event was held at the Sacred Heart College auditorium in San Ignacio with the participation of key partners in development. This is the largest cohort of GREAT participants countrywide.

“We are of the view that the program has enhanced the students’ attitude and behavior to be able to resist the negative elements of peer pressure, youth violence and gang involvement,” writes Richard Rosado, Officer in Charge of San Ignacio Police .

The United States Embassy has been instrumental in providing the resources to implement GREAT across Belize. By investing in our youths during their formative years, we are also paving the way towards a brighter future.
