Participants Graduate from Youth-led Road Safety Project

And in more news on road safety…today, sixteen young men and women graduated from the Youth for Road Safety (YOURS) Train the Trainers Programme at the George Price Center. YOURS is an international youth-led and youth-oriented, not-for-profit, N.G.O. that is focused on youth and road safety. In partnership with the Government of Belize and the Caribbean Development Bank, the youth N.G.O. started a two weeks intensive training of trainers on June first to transfer knowledge and skills to a second cadre of young facilitators with the aim to reach over two thousand young Belizeans on road safety issues. Road traffic injuries are the fourth leading cause of death in Belize. Of these, youth comprise thirty percent of road crash fatalities, with young males specifically, accounting for approximately ninety percent. YOURS aims to increase youth’s understanding of road safety, and create the awareness for young men and women to become advocates and peer-facilitators for road safety.
