Youth directory out now

Young people have a new resource
they can turn to for help finding ways they can get involved in the community.

The Youth Services Unit’s 2010
Cayman Islands Youth Service Providers Directory lists youth programmes and
summer activities, and highlights the many youth groups young people can belong

“Research shows that young people
who are involved and engaged are less likely to become addicted to bad habits
like smoking or drinking,” said Head of YSU Katherine Whittaker.”

“As such, we hope that having the
information about different youth groups will motivate young people to join one
this year.”

Minister of Youth the Hon. Mark
Scotland commended the unit’s efforts.

 “This directory is a valuable resource publication
that points our young people in the right direction,” he said.

 Youth who are involved in constructive programmes
benefit on many levels, while group membership instils responsibility and
broadens horizons.”

A financial contribution from
Cayman National allowed YSU to print 150 directories which will be distributed
to all public and private schools, school parent teacher associations,
libraries, and other businesses.
