Connecticut Family is dedicated to showing the good and promise that we can expect from upcoming generations by highlighting the leadership and inspiring activities of area young people.
Last year, we launched a new feature called Young Leaders. The Young Leaders series recognizes the community builders of tomorrow: students who see an outstanding need and work to meet it; who mentor and nurture others; who show leadership in inclusion, compassion, and advocacy; who work diligently (and often quietly) to further a cherished cause. Each day, and all around us, young people are motivated and working to better this world: to help, to heal, to share, to acknowledge, to grow. We’ve interviewed and written about some truly tremendous kids.
We’d like to keep this feature going, so we’re asking regional educators to nominate young people deserving of recognition. If you know a young person making a difference in our world, please (with parental or guardian permission) please send a brief write-up detailing their accomplishments, school, grade and contact information to Managing Editor Faye Parenteau, at firstname.lastname@example.org. And thank you!
