VOTE 2012 – Belize CARICOM YOUTH Ambassador Campaign

The CARICOM Youth Ambassadors’ Program (CYAP) is represented in Belize by Dylan Williams and Kera Bowen both CARICOM Youth Ambassadors. In keeping with its mandate to “Ensure that youth have a voice in the decisions that affect them” Belize’s CARICOM Youth Ambassadors have developed a communication strategy to encourage youth to exercise their right to vote and participate in Belize’s democracy. The CARICOM Youth Ambassadors recognize that youth of Belize constitute almost half of Belize’s population and their participation in the general and municipal elections is crucial in influencing the future of Belize. The CYAs also recognize that it is your constitutional right to participate in your country’s governance and democratic process. The CYA therefore challenge youth and the citizenry to participate in an apolitical manner and vote.

The CYA will launch its VOTE 2012 Campaign via a Public Service Campaign to be aired daily on local radio, television and other media leading up to the Municipal and General elections on March 7, 2012. Collaborative partners to ensure national significance include the CARICOM Youth Ambassador’s Programme (CYAP), National Committee for Families and Children (NCFC) and Youth for the Future (YFF). If you have any questions regarding this initiative feel free to contact the Youth Ambassadors at the numbers listed below.

Kera Bowen-Polonio – 626-2048
