Rhodes Scholar Says Youth Must Be Positively Engaged

Jamaica’s 2014 Rhodes Scholar, Timar Jackson, says the country’s youth, particularly those at risk, must be positively engaged as part of efforts to combat crime and violence in the country. He argued that a number of young people, who become victims or perpetrators of crime, are often idle, and had they been engaged in worthwhile, wholesome activities, they could have avoided being in certain situations. Timar (24) was one of four participants in a panel discussion facilitated by Minister of Youth and Culture, the Hon. Lisa Hanna during the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention at the Jamaica Conference Centre, in downtown Kingston on January 30.
