Youth Innovation Incubator Summer Program Comes to an End

This afternoon at the House of Culture in Belize City, the Belize City Council concluded its Youth Innovation Incubator Summer Program, an initiative that saw participants from various communities coming together to beautify the Old Capital, and engage in other activities, including sports and financial literacy.  Here’s more from Mayor Bernard Wagner.

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize

“We had a wonderful summer with our children, our youths, or women, our elderly.  We had an awesome summer program which really focused on innovation and building this incubation group where we looked at not only the sporting aspect, the volleyball, the basketball, the swimming.  We also looked at financial literacy, we looked at development, human development.  We had a group from the high schools working along with us in a summer work program.  They did most of the painting in the Digi Park.  We are doing massive renovation in Digi Park because over the years, the maintenance has been behind and so they painted some of the play sets, they painted the sidewalks, they painted the stage over.  We placed some boulders along the sea to curb the erosion that is occurring there.  But overall, we are very satisfied with the type of program we had this year, it was a wide mix.  Not only that sporting aspect, but also the development of the human mind and the human capacity.  We also looked at a Peewee League which will be concluding tomorrow.  I would invite you out to the game tomorrow between our seven to twelve-year-old kids, wonderful group of kids.  The councilors, myself and some other mayors will be playing a celebrity game as well.  So, it will be a fun event tomorrow night at the Belize City Center, between 5:30 up until 8:00.”
