In making the $40,000 cheque presentation to support the work of Team StreetSafe, Minister Baron said, “We are determined to invest in Bermuda’s young people. Too often we write off those young adults who may have made poor lifestyle choices.

“If Bermuda is to succeed we need all of our citizens engaged and productive. Team StreetSafe meets these young men and women where they are and works incredibly hard provide them with the tools to make positive choices.”

    Love the cash back program, must be up to around $500,000 in total I think by now and the colours in the photos really pop!

  2. That’s nice, how about tackling the problem from the root, the cause of gangs and anti- social behavior is drugs, guns which seem to be getting in our island pretty easy and de small guy gets de short end of de stick.
    So you educate these young people, train them and then tell them they have no experience, this problem has been created over decades of negligence to Bermudians and almost every position that is open is given to an ex-pat and you expect to throw a bone and expect de problem to go away !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • What About You? says:

      You seem to always have all the answers for everything out there, Onion Juice. What have you done about it? You are part of the problem, me, me, me, I , I, I, gimme, gimmee, complain, complain….and do nothing.

      Who have you mentored, hired, trained and helped? Are you a part of an outreach program? Where do you volunteer?

      Imagine how much you could do, if instead of complaining about everything every day, you actually took a few hours each day and gave back to the community…and by community I don’t mean the BIU or PLP that you constantly sing the praises of!

      • I’m only doing what U.B.P. supporters were doing when P.L.P. were in.

        Onion Juice, you ARE the problem. And there is not a day that goes by that goes by that you don’t prove that to everyone.

    Gangs were encouraged not by design by the years of Beyoncé and fast ferries and bullsheet.

    Not even worth discussing these issues with you Onion.

    At this stage; not worth it.
