Prince’s Trust International has been working in Barbados since 2016 through delivery partners the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF). RBPF’s mission is to provide the highest quality police service in partnership with our community to ensure a safe and stable environment.
The Royal Barbados Police Force has been delivering the 12-week Team Programme to young people aged 16-25 across Barbados.
The Team Programme aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills and as a result enables those young people to move (back) into employment, education, training, volunteering or an apprenticeship. The programme combines outdoor and community challenges with classroom-based learning, and is structurally designed to provide for active team-building, and gradually increasing skills development, including communication, reliability, confidence, motivation and resilience. Through developing these skills, young people are encouraged to think positively and pro-actively about their futures.
Personal development takes place throughout by the process of planning, action and review, and with a strong focus on team-building and helping their wider community, young people are encouraged to see their place in the world and the important contribution that they can make. The Team Programme is one of our longest running and most transformative programmes.
During their time with RBPF young people take part in a residential, community projects and work experience and receive support with getting a job or securing a place on a training programme. The Team Programme runs across the North, South and Bridgetown areas of the island.
RBPF’s mission is to provide the highest quality police service in partnership with our community to ensure a safe and stable environment.
Team programmes are starting in September and January with the Royal Barbados Police Force – 12 week full time personal development and employability programmes
