Description du stage : The program slogan, Your Life, Your Health, Make it Right, reflects the program's goal to instill the value of maintaining a healthy lifestyle among Caribbean youth, while promoting peer leadership skills and social responsibility.

The Caribbean Healthy Lifestyle Project (CHLP) is based on three principles:
- Participation in sport and physical activity gives youth positive and empowering experiences.
- Using mentors/trainers to help young girls recognize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
- Shaping leadership attitudes and capacity through sport.

To ensure the sustainability of the program, emphasis is placed on providing training opportunities for local youth. Youth leaders are identified and trained to be Healthy Lifestyle Project (HLP)leaders, providing them with the skills and experience to run HLP workshops in their own communities. It is a 'youth for youth' initiative, involving youth in the planning and delivery of all aspects of the program
