NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Violent crime among school-aged children is steadily rising.  It makes the work of organizations that work with these kids so much  more important.

Jerome Sawyer introduces a program that is making a difference in the lives of our kids and in need of your help. 



A 2016 survey of prisoners showed a majority of graduates from C.C. Sweeting Senior High School. 

No wonder that 8 years ago when the Young Life Organization branched out from Grand Bahama they choose C.C Sweeting. 

It’s a Christian based organization using the gospel to reach young people.

Organizers seek to make it a structured a well-rounded program that addresses every aspect of adolescent development.

In the 20 years since it started they’ve seen the success. 

Twelfth-grader Carrem Gray is into his third year as a young life participant while his classmate Ebony Stuart recently joined.

The organization depends on public donations to fund their weekly meetings, outings  and annual summer camp. 

Starting May 1st they begin their annual Walk for Hope fundraiser to try and take 100 kids to camp at a cost of $300 each. 

For more information and to donate, visit bahamas.younglife.org.
