The Belmopan Police, in collaboration with the Business Community of Belmopan, is offering summer jobs to children between the ages of 9 and 15 years. They are targeting less fortunate children who must reside in Belmopan City or any of the 12 surrounding villages (Frank’s Eddy, St. Matthews, Cotton Tree, More Tomorrow, St. Margaret’s, Armenia, Valley of Peace, Roaring Creek, Camalote, Teakettle, Ontario, and Blackman Eddy). Job descriptions include mechanic, furniture making, agro producers, tire repair, fuel attendance, among others.

The strategic vision of the collaboration is to give young people an opportunity to become role models and deliver them in to successful adults.

Meetings have already taken place with officials from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Belmopan Police met to finalize plans for the 2nd annual Youth engaged in Agriculture program.

According the officer commanding Belmopan, children participating will learn small scale vegetable farming, grafting and budding of fruit trees, cheese and salsa casera production, milk production, back yard gardening, tilapia and chicken rearing, corn and beans production, ice cream processing and horse husbandry. The week long program will culminate with a kids rodeo at the National Agriculture and Trade Show Grounds. Additional features will include a kids park and zip lining trip.

Any person interested in attending the employment program can pick up applications at the Belmopan Police station. The program will run from 31 July to 5 August, 2017.
