Educational & Counseling Services

Through its remedial education and counseling services, Children First has been able to equip hundreds of children and youths to join the formal school system,  or the world of work respectively. The Remedial Education Programme targets children from the ages of 10 to 16 years. The programme is designed for children who are not in the formal school system due to financial, siocial, behavioral and learning challenges and also those who are at risk of becoming or are already engaged in illicit activities. The Remedial Education Project usually serves about 435 youngsters annually (Old Harbour Bay and Spanish Town) where they are exposed to skills training in Cosmetology, Barbering, Videography and Photography. In additional life skills sessions are conducted to explore youth social issues, such as Adolescent Reproductive Health, Violence Prevention, Drug Abuse, Self Esteem, Peer Pressure, Sexual Transmitted Diseases and Social Etiquettes.

After Children First’s intervention, these students are re-integrated into the formal school system or placed in a skills training programme. Throughout their interaction with agency counseling services are offered which include, Career Counseling and Guidance and Individual, Group and Family Counseling.
