Contemporary dancer Trent Williams Jr. emplowered at-risk youth during two weeks of workshops in Trinidad by teaching discipline through dance.  Williams, a professor of dance at the University of Florida, conducted workshops as far away as the south-eastern community of Guyaguayare.  U.S. embassy programs like the one that brought Mr. Williams encourage economically disadvantaged youth populations to seek out opportunities and not allow their circumstances to lead them astray.
