Team StreetSafe receives $40,000 cheque

Senator Jeffrey Baron presented Team StreetSafe with a $40,000 cheque yesterday as part of the Cash Back for Communities programme.

“We are determined to invest in Bermuda's young people,” the Minister of National Security said.

“Too often we write off those young adults who may have made poor lifestyle choices

“If Bermuda is to succeed we need all of our citizens engaged and productive.

“Team StreetSafe meets these young men and women where they are and works incredibly hard provide them with the tools to make positive choices.”

The programme provides direct intervention with those young people involved in the gang lifestyle and antisocial behaviour, connecting them with services including education, apprenticeships and employment.

Cash Back for Communities is made possible through the confiscated assets or proceeds of crime initiative, where seized funds are given back to organisations doing good work in the community. Yesterday's presentation took place at the Department of Youth and Sport's Community Centre on Angle Street.
