About us
The Caribbean Boys in Care limited is a well established non profit organisation which has identified the need to support children in care who have lost self-esteem, vision and facing barriers to employment and other opportunities due to prejudice.
Through repeated failures in the society, the exposure to sexual and physical abuse in the streets and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. To accomplish this goal, young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect.
Incorporated in 2005, Caribbean Boys in Care is a program that is in direct response to the growing number of young people that are either falling through the cracks at school or are already entangled with the juvenile court system.
The goal of the organisation is to identify youths who are going to have a turbulent transition to adulthood and offer positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives.
Its core activities will be to provide information and advice on subjects ranging from welfare rights to housing, education and employment.
In order to achieve the above mentioned, arrangements have already been made with various institutions like International College, ACA Institute and DCAS Business School who will put together a package based on NVQ to train those boys in different skills.
Skills training will be tailored to the needs of the individuals after the initial diagnostic analysis.
Motivation will involve events arranged with experienced psychologists and therapists who will interact with the individuals on networking or working days, they will give speech, take questions and Caribbean Boys in Care administration will do the follow-ups
Mentorship will be combined with NVQ training in different fields.
Recently the Caribbean Boys in Care has focused more and more on improving economic opportunities for its service users through projects that serve the barriers to employment faced by the community. Especially those faced by Caribbean boys.
The latest project was an initiative by members who after thorough research and their experience in housing management support realised the social and economic stigma that was faced by the boys aged 15-25 who have been in care homes.
Mentors will receive continuous training throughout the year and will participate in monthly meeting to report the young person's progress.
Over time, Caribbean Boys in Care will form partnerships with local care homes and the juvenile court system.
