Counselling Unit in St. Kitts spearheads Project to aid in Social difficulties 

The St. Kitts Counselling Unit has been undertaking a Project entitled the “Community, Family and Youth Resilience program” to aid in the social difficulties families are experiencing, as well as the impacts on the wider community.

 

The Project ran from July 2016 to September 2020. 

 

Director of the St. Kitts Counselling Unit, Ms. Michele de la Coudray-Blake spoke about the aim of the project: 

 

 

The Community, Family and Youth Resilience Program funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) supports family networks, communities, service providers and government agencies to implement successful approaches to reduce Crime and Violence and increase opportunities for youths in St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis and Guyana.

 

She also spoke about how the Project was implemented here in the federation:

The Program will use Community, Crime and Violence Prevention plans that strengthen data-driven observatories to conduct hotspot Crime and Violence Mapping, adapt a public health approach to reducing violence, connect the community to the police and other service providers to support at-risk youth and build linkages with the private sector to support youth employment.
