The Mirrors programme was established through the efforts of former Premier Dr. Ewart Brown, Mr. Kenneth Bascome, Nibs Lewis and Rudolph Lawrence. These men mobilized and engaged the community and key stakeholders for approximately 11 years to implement a programme to address the challenges facing our youth. With the help of Dr. Brown, Ms. Luelle Todd and Mr. Dale Butler the programme was launched in April 2007.
Mirrors is a personal development programme which serves the people of Bermuda and its residents, aged eight and up through the elements of Transformation, Personal Development, Mentoring and Performance Coaching.
Our programmes are based on creating a deep and lasting transformation in the lives of its participants so they can develop their potential and skills for the future – no matter how difficult their current circumstances.
The programmes are tailored to meet the needs of the group and are based on the same five core principals – commitment, responsibility, integrity, self-expression, and possibility.
Mirrors provides several benefits to the participants and to the community as a whole.
- Raised self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth
- Improved relationships between youth and adults (including parents, service providers, authority figures, community leaders, and the general public).
- Decrease in at risk behaviours (crime, drug use, risky sexual behaviour, violence – verbal/physical; and sexual abuse, self-harm etc.).
