  • Drugs/ Alcohol
  • And much more.

“The forum is free and open to all high school students ages 14 – 17 years old. Food will also be provided. Click here to register.

“The Youth Forum is an extension of Raleigh Bermuda’s community discussion “Drugs, Gangs and Corner Boys. Is my Child being Recruited? on July 24, 2022, which was in partnership with the Bermuda Police Service and Pathways Bermuda.

“At the summer Community Presentation, Raleigh Bermuda shared their experiences and findings in working with young people regarding violence, gang recruitment, drugs, and street grooming. In 2020, Raleigh Bermuda developed and launched the “I am Brave” Programme for high school students which has become one of the most successful and impactful anti-violence and advocacy programme on island.”
