During our field trip on the last day of Robotics Camp, Chronixx‘ 2012 song ‘Ain’t No Giving In’ came on the stereo in the bus. Immediately, all the students began to belt out:

Mi seh mi never a give up
A seh there ain’t no giving in
Caw when the going gets tough
A seh the tough get going

The song’s lyrics about persevering in the face of struggles seemed especially poignant coming from the mouths of the students in the Youth Development Program. In spite of the challenges they face, these boys haven’t given up – it is inspiring to watch what happens when they are given the opportunity to thrive.
