CRUZ BAY — The 6th Annual St. John Summer Youth Fair is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the Julius Sprauve School, located in Cruz Bay, St. John, at 5:30 p.m.

Summer camp time is almost here and children are looking forward to having fun at the summer camp of their choice and many young people will have their first experience at summer employment.

The St. John Summer Youth Fair helps to connect children and their families with summer activities and employment opportunities, and operates on a simple concept – Gather all the summer camps and youth employment programs together in one place. Invite the youth and their families to come, view all the programs, pick their favourite and sign up!

Having youth involved in summer programs is a plus for the entire community, as the programs expose youngsters to positive alternatives and they, in turn, receive valuable learning opportunities.

The St. John Summer Youth Fair is organized by the St. John Community Integration Team (CIT) and the Virgin Islands Police Department. CIT is a volunteer organization that works in conjunction with the Virgin Islands Police Department in recognizing and addressing ways to improve police/community relations.

If you didn’t participate last year, there’s still time to join up and become a part of this exciting event!

Contact Sakeeda, VIPD Media Specialist for more information on the St. John Summer Youth Fair.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
