Inner-City Teenagers Benefiting from 'Teens are Terrific' Summer Camp - Jamaica Information Service

"We are especially proud of our young men," says Director, Health Promotion and Education in the Ministry of Health, Takese Foga, who co-ordinated the camp."Even though our ladies continue to impress us, the young men have really stepped it up a notch or two this year," she tells JIS News in an interview.Speaking of the phenomenal achievement she has observed in young male participants, Miss Foga says that, "we know they have been faced with many things, some of them have been involved in fights and are face-to-face with individuals in their communities who may be reinforcing negative and aggressive behaviour, so to see them come to the camp and even hear them speak differently, trying to make a difference, we see where it has made a difference between when they came and when they left".Miss Foga says that she expected this kind of embracing reception to the camp, as over the last three years in the 21-year camp, "greater emphasis was placed on involving as many inner city communities as possible on a budget".Some $1 million was allocated to the funding of the camp."The goal of the camp was to provide a source of positive social influence primarily, but not exclusively, for inner-city youth from low income families that will enhance self-esteem, build self confidence, develop and improve relationships with youth and adults from diverse backgrounds, and lead to personal, social development," she tells JIS News.She says that the camp is seeking to remedy issues affecting teenagers, who may lack community and parental support to stem societal problems daily."Teenagers are impressionable and react rapidly to stimulus.As individuals, they need a general and personalized plan with their decision- making, to develop their inherent qualities.And, besides academics, children need to learn practical living skills, and spiritual practices, which provide a foundation for living in society as useful adults," she adds.Miss Foga says she is impressed with the feedback from participants."They are a lot more focussed and they appreciate who they are.They have better ideas of how they can impact their communities," she says.Furthermore, Miss Foga says the unit intends to do follow-ups on this year's participants to sustain the positive changes in the lives of the youngsters."This will give us a better glimpse of how different they are now from where they started.This way we will be able to see that they progress beyond what they accomplished at the camp, growing every month, every year," she tells JIS News.
