What we're all about
The objective of the Exuma Youth Empowerment Center is to provide a fun-filled, yet safe atmosphere that parents would feel comfortable allowing their children to attend. Fun is defined as creative, stimulating, progressive action; thus, crafters, and vocational professionals will be constantly available to oversee activities.
The Library & Computer Lab
A library equipped with computers and the necessary tools for completing projects, home-assignments, and course-work is readily available. Volunteers man hotlines throughout the week to assist with home-assignments.
Mind stimulating and logical interactive discussions are staged via debates and symposiums at regular intervals throughout the year.
Junior Achievers learn Entrepreneurship
To encourage young entrepreneurship, Junior Achiever Companies are encouraged to operate the café alternately, as a part of ongoing competitions, and to gain experience in a turn-key operation.
The Centre is a non-profit entity, thus funds are welcomed from residents and visitors alike. Fundraisers which take place several times throughout the year, Café funds and donations, combine to assist with operational and maintenance costs.
Other non-profit organizations will be welcome access to office/storage space, once the building is completed.
