A Pilot Project to reduce youth on youth violence, particularly in schools, currently underway, is increasingly receiving positive feedback and buy-in from target audiences and stakeholders alike in five CARICOM Member States: Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis,
Saint Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago.
In the approximately seven months since implementation commenced, the project has yielded an assessment of risks factors, threats for violence, protective factors and school bonding factors in the pilot schools in the selected Member States. To date, five hundred and twenty students have been surveyed and have also participated in various focus group discussions. With the majority of them between the ages of 11 – 16 (90%), many were victims of bullying, classroom theft and robbery by other students.
