Praise for Mirrors participants
A group of young people have completed the Mirrors Programme.
Social development minister Michael Weeks announced 29 teenagers, aged between 14 and 18, successfully came through the third phase of the project which included an eight-month spell with a personal coach.
They attended a monthly workshop and participated in a community service project clean-up day at Fort Cunningham.
Mr Weeks praised the participants in a ceremony at the Whitney Institute Middle School earlier this month.
He said “Congratulations on this accomplishment and remember your journey doesn’t end here.
“Continue to match behaviour and values, learn from mistakes, speak honestly and kindly, make the most of every moment, make your dreams happen, take responsibility for actions, be willing to do things differently and live your best life.”
Programme manager Kimberley Jackson said: “I would like to thank the staff of Mirrors for their dedication and commitment to Bermuda’s youth.
“Thank you community partners for your ongoing contribution to the success of our programme and thank you parents and volunteers for your support and willingness to partner with us to strengthen youth outcomes for a strengthened community.
“This is truly a community programme. To the young people I am pleased with your results and I charge you to take what you have learnt and live your best life.”
