  • Southside Youth Success: Pathways to Employment for Young Men at-risk of Joining Gangs

    This project is being implemented in the socio-economically deprived Southside of Belize City (SBC), the most violent area of the country where homicide rates "exploded" in 2002 and show little sign of falling today (Gayle, 2010:289). It aims to assist young men between the ages of 15 to 29, in obtaining increased opportunities, through mentoring, training and apprenticeship.
