Ghetto Youths Foundation Learning Center

Set to open on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 on the eve of Bob Marley’s 75th Birthday Celebration, the Ghetto Youths Foundation Learning Center is a project of great significance to the GYF Board of Directors, as a facility created by the organization in service of the larger community.  Created as a center for learning and educational support, mentoring and guidance — an oasis in the Trench Town community where Bob Marley was raised, this brand new facility will support young people on a pathway to educational success and self-reliance.

The new Learning Center will offer opportunity to hundreds of young people from the surrounding Trench Town communities, including access to computers, printers, reading and test prep, programming classes, and overall academic support.

Designed as a flexible learning space, the Center will feature an Academic Study Hall, Computer Lab, and Learning Library.

As the first major brick-and-mortar project for GYF, the Learning Center is designed to create transformative and generationally impactful change in the community.
“Education is the pathway to freedom, and every child deserves the opportunity to walk down that path.”
— Stephen Marley
