The Frangipani Beach Resort is proud to partner with Anguilla’s Blowing Point Youth Development Center. The center works to bridge the gap between school, college, and the workplace for all children and young people in the Blowing Point community and surrounding areas.
Staff and volunteers at the center provide ongoing support and guidance to youth in the areas of academics and life skills. The Blowing Point Youth Development Center is staffed by volunteers from the island and is able to provide services through the generosity of donors in Anguilla and abroad.

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
