Presentations were made to the over 200 tertiary awardees on Thursday (September 23), during a ceremony at the Jamaica Conference Centre, in downtown Kingston.Speaking at the ceremony, Minister of National Security, Senator the Hon. Dwight Nelson, said the scholarships, valued at over $100 million, represent the largest scholarship award under the Ministry’s crime prevention programme. He said it is a sign of the Ministry’s commitment to empowering Jamaicans.Minister of National Security, Senator Dwight Nelson (third left), with (from left) law student Zoe Curtis; medical student Moneifa Hartley; medical student Doneilo Thomas; dental nursing therapy student, Dania Dennis; and law student Kaydian Carter, who received scholarships at the Citizen Security and Justice Programme(CSJP) scholarship awards ceremony, held at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston, on September 23. The students from August Town, Tower Hill, Mountain View and Waterhouse were among 1,800 tertiary and high school students from 27 volatile communities who received scholarships totaling more than $100 million.Senator Nelson argued that the CSJP model was an effective prevention model that promotes safer communities. “The model suggests that the participation of people, driven by improved educational achievements, enhances beliefs in their own abilities to transform their own lives,” he said.The CSJP is a multi-faceted crime and violence prevention initiative of the Ministry of National Security, which focuses on building community safety and security. The programme is now in its second phase (CSJP II), having completed the pilot phase in 2009.Since 2001, the CSJP has been offering support to primary, secondary and tertiary students within the Kingston, Montego Bay and Savanna-la-Mar areas. Support to tertiary students was stepped up in 2007 with scholarships awarded to 300 persons, and has since increased six fold to more than 1,800.Programme Manager for CSJP II, Simeon Robinson, shared statistics which show that youth between 14 and 24 years are both victims and perpetrators of crime, stressing that it is imperative that they are engaged, rehabilitated and resocialised.Minister of National Security, Senator Dwight Nelson (right), and Programme Manager for the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) II, Simeon Robinson (centre), examine the programme for the CSJP’s scholarship awards ceremony, held at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston, on September 23. Looking on is Community Action Co-ordinator, CSJP, Orville Simmonds. Over $100 million in scholarships have been awarded to over 1,800 tertiary and high school students from 27 volatile communities.Mr. Robinson disclosed that this year the CSJP took a policy decision to support 11 students who are currently enrolled in the faculties of law and medicine at the University of the West Indies.“The CSJP is proud of every scholar who has been successful. They were evaluated against evaluation criteria designed to identify those most in need, those with good grades, those involved in the development of their communities and those who were previous beneficiaries, so as not to disrupt their schooling,” he said.Sharing her experience as a past beneficiary of a CSJP scholarship, medical doctor, Claudia Allen, said she grew up in Trench Town and at first struggled to finance her educational ambitions.“I was very instrumental in my own tuition, because I had to work on the weekends and study. So, when I was introduced to the CSJP it was such a blessing for me, because I could just focus on school only, and it came at a critical time when I didn’t really have the time to be working along with going to school,” she said.Dr. Allen, who graduated in 2008 from the University of the West Indies, Mona, as the first doctor in her family, credits the programme for fostering a good relationship between the community and members of the security forces.

Justice Teaching at Bethune Elementary School of the Arts

first_imgJustice Teaching at Bethune Elementary School of the Arts October 15, 2013 Regular News PEMBROKE PINES ATTORNEY BRUCE BLITMAN has been the Justice Teaching volunteer for Bethune Elementary School of the Arts since 2009. However, his first visit of the 2013-14 school year was different than the previous year. The teacher with whom he has volunteered for years, Sherri Moss, now teaches third grade rather than fifth grade. Blitman presented a lesson plan on Constitution Day that emphasizes the importance of fair rules and laws in a democratic society. The visit culminated with Blitman giving each student a personal copy of the United States Constitution. Blitman described his first Justice Teaching experience with third-grade students as very positive, and he has committed to visiting Moss’s class at Bethune Elementary multiple times during the 2013-14 school year. For future sessions, he plans to approach subjects such as bullying and also present guest speakers, including judges and prosecutors. “I have had the most amazing experiences of my teaching career because of our volunteer and Justice Teaching,” Moss said. “I still find it difficult to believe how lucky I am to have such important, busy people take so much time and effort to assist me with educating my students.” To learn more about becoming a Justice Teaching volunteer, visit www.justiceteaching.org.last_img read more

‘Reducing Stigma’: Could Mental Health Days Help California Students?

first_imgStudents in California may soon have the option of taking a mental health day. For about three-quarters of adults who struggle with anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder, symptoms first appeared in childhood, he said. Seeking treatment earlier could be a way to head off future problems. Dr Mark Reinecke, a clinical director and psychologist with the Child Mind Institute, is broadly supportive of the bill, which he said reduces stigma and encourages young people to seek help, something that could offer long-term benefits. … Senate bill 849, written by the California state senator Anthony Portantino, would allow students time out of school to treat or attend to mental health needs without risk of being considered truant, an infraction that could lead to penalties for students and fines for parents. Yet, Reinecke cautions against what he said could be “unintended consequences” of the legislation, which could increase absenteeism or even worsen symptoms for students dealing with phobias and anxiety around school. In 2016, about 8 million students in the US missed three or more weeks of school, absences that put students at risk of lower test scores and higher dropout rates. In California, a student who misses 10% of the school year – about 18 days – is considered chronically absent. Read the whole story: The Guardian More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
