The project was executed under the theme “The Barrouallie Police Youth Club making a difference, touching lives and impacting the community”
Speaking at the event, The National Coordinator of Police Youth Clubs, Sergeant of Police, Mr. Stephen Billy, said “Projects like these are to help young men and women understand that they are not alone in the society. We are teaching them to share and to be mindful to care for others. These senior citizens would be receiving the food baskets as a token from the Barrouallie Police Youth Club.
He outlined that the (PYC) is not looking for publicity – rather, it is about socializing our children the right way, So that they can understand the value of sharing and respect for their elders”.
According to the Officer in charge of Police Youth Clubs, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Mr. Junior Simmons “The Police Youth Clubs are the most trending club in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. This sentiment was echoed during his presentation at the event.
