There are 4 centers within the Western Region. The National 4H center is considered a unit on its own and offers a personal development training course for out-of-school youth. 4H focuses on developing basic skills in agriculture, agro processing, and health.
There are youth centers in Belmopan, Santa Elena and Benque Viejo; offering a wide coverage to youth. These centers engage in capacity building as instructed under the Department’s mandate; but a great highlight to make note of is the Western Region's focus on expressive arts and the impacts it can have on youth development. It is through expressive art programs that the youth showcase their true talents and speak in ways that pen and paper will not allow them.
