Self Help boost for summer camp

The Youth Services Unit’s Sizzling Summer Series Camp got a welcome boost from The New Self-Help Community Foundation this summer.  

The New Self-Help Community Foundation, a non-profit organisation, which aims to help teenaged youth develop a sense of self-worth, independence and community spirit, sponsored up teenage participants in the Culture Camp.  

The cost for the week-long camp is $50, which some families could not readily afford. The donation from the foundation meant that up to 10 young people benefitted from the camp without any financial burdens on their household. 

New Self-Help Community Foundation CEO JC Connor said: “The Foundation recognised the goals of the National Youth Policy and as always we are delighted to partner with the Youth Services Unit to promote the goals of the policy and to ensure that all youth in Cayman develop a strong sense of self worth and cultural identity through educational opportunities like the Sizzling Summer Series Camps”.  

Mr. Connor said the investment in the summer camp had been made possible by the success of the New Self-Help Community Foundation’s 11th Annual Talent Exposition of the Arts and the supporters and friends of the foundation.
