GREAT Work Continues with Sporting Cup

Elroy Carcamo

To continue to engage at risk youths, the GREAT and Cadet Programmes have joined forces for an event they call the GREAT Cup. It will feature three sporting disciplines and will see youths from different precincts join forces for the games. It will kick off in October. Inspector Elroy Carcamo tells us more.

“The purpose of this GREAT Cup is to develop our youth cadet corp program. We notice that while our youth cadet corp program is strong across the country, in Belize District itself we have to put something in place to keep them motivated and going along. So, we have linked with the GREAT program to have a sporting activity called the GREAT Cup; which will have Cadet Members and GREAT youths from different precincts coming together and participating in different sporting activities which will have volleyball, basketball, and football. What will happen is that it will be done over a period of time so we will start off with volleyball in October where we will have our main sponsor agency which is US Embassy. Then the youths will be participating in basketball and then football. But it is not only about the tournament. What we are doing is that these youths have to participate in life skills training every week in order to remain in the tournament and these sessions will be done by GREAT facilitators and facilitators from the community.”
