Mr. Myles' ground-breaking work helping young people by establishing after-school programmes is remarkable for its success and sheer numbers.

In April of 2011, 60 children were being served by after-school programmes in the Cayman Islands. In less than two years, that number has grown to 1,400 kids, now supported by nine programmes.

To help ensure the success of his efforts, Mr. Myles has set up a best practices programme to glean the most effective ideas, methods and policies from successful programmes such as the YMCA / YWCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, and other leading organisations.

He has successfully introduced the BEST concept to the Cayman Islands: Behavior and Educational Support Team (BEST) MODEL

The BEST Model aims to ensure that at-risk youth and their families are identified as early as possible. Services and support will then be provided collaboratively by multiple agencies in an effort to prevent or intervene with such youth both prior to and immediately following any potential or actual involvement in the juvenile justice system.

The objective is to establish a supportive environment in which emotional well-being; positive mental health; positive behaviour and school attendance are improved so that children and young people develop the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become productive adults.

As Mr. Myles says "It takes a Village." He also points out that giving even 10 minutes of your time to a youngg person can make a HUGE difference!
