Chairwoman of the coordinating team that manages the Youth Development Zone project, Martha Dismont, stated in a press release: “The Youth Development Zone project was developed to provide the young people and their families within North East Hamilton with healthy youth programmes and coordinated agency resource support.

“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.”
