The Urban Renewal Seahorse Center hosted a youth empowerment seminar for young people ages 10 to 17.

Youth Empowerment Leader, Floydreca Russell said, “a lot of children these days, they gettin’ bully in school, pick on because of they size or we get a lot of them trying to commit suicide. So, I just want to let them know or we just want to let them know that hey, its someone you can come and talk to. Even if they come and knock on Urban Renewal door just let them know that we’re here for them.”

According to Kyla Tener-Knowles, Center Manager, plans are underway to cover more topics and engage more speakers and reach the wider community of east Grand Bahama.
