Youth Programs

There is a growing concern that youth violence is becoming a major problem in Anguilla. At APANY we believe that there is a moral imperative to reduce youth violence and keep our youth and community safe. Too many teen lives are being destroyed by incidents that do not reflect the sentiment of the “Tranquility Wrapped in Blue” Island we once knew. This could be a threat to our local economy that is largely dependent on the tourism and hospitality industry. We, therefore, recommend the support of permanent funding and implementation of projects that will provide ;

-Meaningful after-school activities

-Better wages and career opportunities

-A sense of hope for the future

-A positive alternative to the senseless violence among our youth
