The Kids in Action program is coordinated yearly by the San Pedro Tour Operators Association and San Pedro Tour Guides Association. The program entails taking kids between the ages of 12 to 15 years from different schools and training them to Dive. The objective of the program captures kids and ensures, the following:

1. STAY IN SCHOOL - The stay in school Assures that we give the different elementary schools the right on how to choose the kids. Some are selected by good conduct while others are selected by academic achievement. We obtain different kids and communicate with parents on how they are doing.

2. LEARN ECOLOGY - We ensure that there is a safe place for kids from different schools while they enjoy each other's company. At the same time they learn about the ecology of the coral reef. They also get to understand and appreciate the Belize Barrier Reef. This will open their minds to protection and conservation. A popular activity chosen by them is a six hour clean up campaign.

LEARN TO DIVE - They learn to enjoy scuba. The biggest enthusiasm is learning how to conduct scuba. The kids are excited as they learn all academics and skills to scuba dive. They complete their junior open water certification from PADI .

CONTINUATION - The kids obtain the base knowledge and skills to dive and are perfect candidates for continuing programs like coral check, fish count, and even continuing to obtain advanced Open Water. Some of these kids have become dive masters, marine biologist instructors, operators and even end up owning their own operations. The sky is the limit and we have placed the corner stone for their carriers .

In conclusion our program is two weeks during the school summer vacation. We have chosen to stay with the PADI program because it's the best choice for proper open water dive training. We use the elite of the instructors in SanPedro, Belize. PADI has been one of our biggest sponsor and best option in supporting our efforts for over 12 years by producing and donating the manuals and pictures. The San Pedro Tour Guides Association and the San Pedro Tour Operators Association would like to express their biggest thanks to PADI for always supporting their cause.

Special thanks go to Andre Perez and Blue Economy. Mayor Wally Nunez and SanPedro Town Council. Manager Ian Pau and Holchan Marine Reserve. Emiliano Rivero and Pro Divers . Billy Leslie and RRR Responders. The Many Dive Instructors and Dive Operators. Amigos Del Mar, Ramon's .
