Five participants at the Central Eleuthera High School, and one from Harbour Island All Age School recently received the Governor General's Youth Award (GGYA) Bronze Award.

Completing the minimum requirements in order to qualify for the Bronze Award were: Jessica Cooper. Calvern Hart, Keenan Johnson, Angelica Roker, Edward Russell and Cagney Rolle.

They carried out the following:

* Participated in a physical recreation activity for at least 3 months,

* Performed a minimum of 3 months of community service, keeping a diary

* Followed a skill for 6 months minimum,

* Completed a 2-day, one night expedition covering a minimum of 15 miles backpacking on foot

The Award Programme started in Britain in 1956 and now operates in Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean. Europe, the Middle East and North America under a variety of titles.

It is a comprehensive Programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities for use by agencies and individuals with a concern for the development of young people no matter what their background or personal circumstances.

Its aims are to develop self-reliance, confidence, initiative and social awareness by participation in four areas of activity (service, expeditions, skills and physical recreation) at three different levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold - which require progressively greater perseverance and commitment. The programme is cost effective, flexible and can be operated anywhere in virtually any setting however plentiful or limited the resources.

To date, 5 million young people from over 100 countries have taken part in the award programme, including The Bahamas.

There are three units on Eleuthera and one on Harbour Island. Nationally GGYA consists of 39 units with over 1,000 young Bahamians involved. They are at various high schools, COB and youth organizations.
