We Transform programme to benefit from JamBar lyme

The We Transform Youth Empowerment Programme is set to benefit from the Jamaican Bar Association (JamBar) annual Bar Beat social, dubbed ‘Link up and Drink Up’ , to be held at C& C South Beach on May 25.

“The (We Transform) programme is carried out by the Department of Correctional Services and targets youth ages 12 to 21 who are in their care and supervision,” Kathryn Williams, co-chairperson of the Social Affairs and Outreach Committee of JamBar stated, “They engage youths in activities that help to prevent them from reoffending.”

She noted that the social events took a break, but it was revamped and brought back last year in the form of a breakfast party.

Rave reviews

“Last year was the first in a while that the social was being held, so we held a breakfast party which got rave reviews; so we decided to keep it alive and make it an annual thing. This year’s JamBar social will be a lyme, where members of the profession can relax and ‘chill’, and talk to others in their profession or other members of the public, as the event is open to all,” Williams said.

Tickets to ‘Link-up and Drink Up ‘ are available at the JamBar office at a cost of $3,000, which includes food and a welcome drink. The list of ticket ambassadors for the event can also be found on Twitter @jambar2019.

“It promises to be a great event where you can come and kick back after a long day at work, so we are inviting everyone to link up and drink up with us,” Williams said.
