The City's Youth Empowerment Center (YEC) program provides activities and services to youth ages 13-18, including after school programs and activities, tutoring/mentoring, jobtraining for in school and out of school youth, information on resources, gang prevention outreach, parenting classes, employment services, Safe School Programs and transportation. For the month of November 2013, the YEC provided the following pro-grams: Tutoring, Professional Opportunities Program for Students (POPS), PALS-Tennis Program by PBSO, Florida Fishing Academy, All About the Ladies Presentations, Healthy Choice Presentation, Recreational Field Trips, and many many more.
In November, the Youth Empowerment Center students were presented brand new life vests by the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Volunteers Battalion and the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office Police Athletic League. The fire rescue volunteers hosted a fundraiser to fund the purchase of the life vests for the students to use during the fishing classes that are facilitated by the Florida Fishing Academy. 
YEC Youth Council President, Kevin Anglade presented Volunteer Battalion Chief Kevin Rattey and Catherine Engel of the Palm Beach Sheriff Office Police Athletic League with letters of appreciation for the donations.
 
YEC 2nd Youth Council Vice President, Amina Amilcar recited a poem she wrote to ex-press the students appreciation.
YEC is pleased to announce that three of the students that attend the City of Belle Glade’s YEC program have been inducted into the Professional Opportunities Program (POPS) for Students. The POPS program promotes integrity, scholarships and provides positive exposure. This program provides the students with different experiences that prepare them for the next phase of their life. They provide opportunities to participate in college tours, leadership training, paid summer internships and scholarship opportunities.
 
In order to be considered for an interview for this program the students had to complete an applica-tion and write an essay on why they should be chosen as a member of this elite organization. They also described their strength of character and values that would support and benefit the organization. All of the applicant’s teachers had to sign a form recommending them for the program and the applicants were responsible for getting three letter of references. Once the students completed those tasks and were deemed qualified, the students were interviewed.
Over 60 students from the City of Belle Glade applied for the program, of those students only 15 were selected and of those, 3 of the students chosen belonged to the YEC. Those students are Kevin Anglade, Mike Paul and Jeffrey Pierre.
 
-Vivian Hunter, Director of Human Resources. Contributions by, Diana Hughes, Assistant Director of Finance; Lillian Tomeu, Grants Manager; and Gary Blake, YEC Coordinator.
