“You, the U-Reporters have spoken and we have listened. 82% said not enough was being done to end violence in schools. U have also given solutions for the problem: allowing past prisoners to tell their stories in an effort to dissuade violence. The voice of our youth is more important now than ever. We can identify both the problem and the solution. Keep voicing!” - @damullings, U-Report Council Member

So many youth doing positive things in Jamaica, such as our 3,800 U-Reporters, but they don’t always get the credit. So extra credit goes to all 58 winners at the Prime Minister’s Youth Awards, among them our own @chrisxharper who launched U-Report in Jamaica! #VoiceMatters #LevelUp #PMYA2018
U-Reporter: Do sessions every week with students and teach them how to resolve problems. The positive former convicts that are focusing on greatness and how to help others, can attend the sessions and talk to them. It should not reach the stage of expelling a child. #ENDviolence #VoiceMatters
At the heart of U-Report is U = youth. Here are members of our Youth Council who represented on World Children’s Day: Dominic, Hakeem, Danielle, Rasheem, Loteshea and Brithney (not in photo) … you’ll be hearing a lot more from them in the future! #VoiceMatters #LevelUp
