Welcome to APANY, Inc., Youth EDU Programs Page

Key Objective of APANY is to collaborate and/or partner with the Anguilla Community College (ACC),

The Department of Youth and Culture (DYC), BIG ON LEARNING (BOL) or other institutions to increase opportunities for young Anguillians through offering apprenticeships, workshops, and other work-based learning programs. APANY will seek to attract donations to assist with providing professional support for hosting specific education, cultural and arts initiatives. Even though the tourism industry is the main economic driver as well as the islands largest private sector employer, there is a need to explore innovative new approaches and resources that will contribute towards providing opportunities for the youth to actively participate in development projects that can lead to more diversity of local products and services.
