Education For Kids By Kids Program

Through the “Education for Kids by Kids” program, the RMP aims to promote youth empowerment.  Older kids receive first hand information about conservation and are responsible for conveying it to younger children. The program consists of four parts: 1. School presentation by the RMP about Coral Reef Ecology Conservation, 2. Training 9th graders on teaching techniques and formation of teams, 3. Final presentation in schools and 4. Snorkel tour for the entire trained group and scuba diving for the best team. So far, this program has been implemented in the Sandy Bay Alternative School, Los Fuertes and Punta Gorda.
