“The Youth Development Zone was launched in response to growing problems affecting youngsters, including violence, gangs, parental challenges, lack of access to resources, and polarised communities.
“Residents in Pembroke, and particularly our young people, need to know that we care about their future. We want residents to know there are donors, agencies and organisations that are working in their best interest, and are invested in their success.”
