City of Westminster College tutor launches Barbados project
City of Westminster College tutor Sheromie Brewster has launched the CATCH youth project (Cultural Arts, Sports & Visual Literacy) for Barbados.
CATCH will teach skills including communication, photography, music and film making, as young people create an online magazine with mentoring from sports stars and professional artists, editors and web designers.
CATCH launches as a four-week programme this August at Kensington Oval Test Cricket Centre in Bridgetown – an area characterised by high youth unemployment. Sheromie, who has close family ties to Barbados, says: “This is about helping the community, as well as sharing good practice about ways to increase aspirations among young people.”
