The Dominica scout association launched its new project called ‘reducing deviance in our youth through scouting’ on February 16th.

The project is aimed at reducing anti-social behavior in the youth of Dominica said her Excellency Jennifer Aird, the ambassador to the federative republic of brazil.

The program is the brain child of chief scout commissioner j. M Bonti Liverpool who submitted it to the messengers of peace programme of the world scout federation with the assistance of Ron Richardson, the operations executive of the interamerican scout regional office.

Mr. Liverpool says that Dominica will begin the pilot program with scouts and young people in Dominica.

The Dominican venture is a pilot program will involve 6 schools in the Roseau district that will participate in 3 orientation camps, 5 deviance reduction workshops and 4 school monitoring exercises.

In addition, 6 bi-monthly community monitoring exercises will take place along with 2 post camp workshops to review and consolidate progress and will culminate with a rally and exhibition.

Mr. Liverpool said that it is hoped that the program will use scouting to lead the charge in preserving not only the ecological environment but also the social environment, by partnering with the drug and alcohol treatment centre, wisdom to know, to provide Dominica with a drug free generation by the year 2035.
