The Bob Marley Foundation, One Love Foundation, Ben and Jerry’s, and Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE) are asking schools across the island to apply to participate in the annual One Love Youth Camp. The camp is currently accepting submissions now and is set to take place early next year. Now in its 3rd year, the Camp is a local youth-empowerment programme that uses creativity and the arts to bring about social change.

Participating teachers receive professional development training in PYE Global’s Creative Community Model, a youth engagement methodology, gaining knowledge and tools to create learning environments where youth can thrive. The teachers then uses the new skills they have acquired at the five-day residential camp, helping youth ages 13-17 unlock their creativity, increase confidence, and build life and leadership skills. The One Love Youth Camp has benefited more than 4,000 young people in Jamaica through practitioner training and residential camps. (Source: Jamaica-Gleaner)
