mission statement
Bay Islands Voice will serve as a venue for growth and strengthening of the Roatan, Utila & Guanaja communities. We will strive to promote a positive image of the Bay Islands, and at the same time report on issues that concern local population. We will make all efforts to provide a dependable venue for good journalism and exchange ideas that would improve human condition on the Islands.
We will report on the culture, news, spiritual life, sports, education, business and provide useful and accurate information to the best of our abilities. VOICE will provide a venue for expression of ideas, encourage community programs and show alternatives to Roatan's, Utila's and Guanaja's youth. We will develop and promote a variety of journalistic skills and knowledge among Bay Islanders through our work, example and internship programs.
Bay Islands Voice will make all efforts to improve understanding and build confidence in the life on the Islands. We will help in developing a sense of pride among our community and encourage investment. Even though we are starting up as humble black and white English language publication we will look for ways of including Spanish and Italian writing in the future color pages of our publication.


We will make mistakes and we will never be perfect, but we promise to improve with time and respond to your comments. We ask for your understanding as we will face inevitable problems of keeping deadlines, making editing choices, dealing with printing issues and bowing to acts of God.
The success of this publication should go hand in hand with the success of this community. We ask for your support through readership, advertising and contribution of ideas as we embark on this journey.
