The centre is expected to have, among other things, a cyber centre with over 14 computers, rap room where young people can share ideas, an area for physically-challenged youths and a Garvey memorial area, which will provide information on Garvey's life and work.


The article details the agreements made by Jamaica's National Centre for Youth Development (NCYD), UNICEF and the St Ann Parish Council to set up a Marcus Garvey Information Centre at "the site that once housed a skills training centre named after the national hero". This information centre is aimed at providing youth in the parish with facilities for information sharing and access. Plans are also outlined about more such centres to be established in the parish as well as throughout the entire island. The site will also provide information about the life of Marcus Garvey, one of Jamaica's national hero, who originated from the parish.
