Three volunteers have been recognised for their efforts and dedication to a scheme that empowers young people to reach their potential.

Angelita Outerbridge, of CedarBridge Academy; John Perinchief, an alumni of the Mirrors Programme; and Friends Association charity volunteer Rosheena Masters, a Mirrors volunteer, were hailed for their contributions to the programme at a ceremony last Friday.

Senator Lindsay Simmons, the Junior Minister of Home Affairs, who attended the event, thanked the volunteers for their efforts.

She said: “It’s because of your willingness to give back to the community that the lives of our young people have been greatly impacted.

“As Helen Keller once said, 'Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.' Thank you for giving countless hours so this impact can continue. Your efforts are deeply appreciated.”

At the event, the volunteer-driven youth programme also announced the opening of its 8th Annual Art and Digital Competition.

Artwork by some of Bermuda’s talented artists was on display.

Ms Simmons urged attendees to explore the exhibition. “We have an incredible exhibition of artwork created by our young people. I encourage you to take a moment to walk through the gallery and celebrate Bermuda's talent,” she said.

The exhibition is open for People's Choice Award voting in the Rick Faries Gallery at the Masterworks Museum until July 31.

The gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.

Kim Jackson, manager of the Mirrors Programme, thanked the volunteers and urged residents to support the art exhibition.

She said: “These partnerships highlight the vital role that community and business collaborations play in nurturing Bermuda's youth, providing a robust support system that empowers them to achieve their full potential.

“We thank our volunteers and each of our partners for their continued support. We welcome the public to come out and visit the art exhibition and cast their votes for their favourite pieces.

Ms Jackson added: “This event is not just a celebration of artistic talent but also a testament to the community’s commitment to fostering a brighter future for Bermuda’s youth.”
