Our Venturers recognize that waiting for someone else to tackle a problem sometimes means that an issue important to them won't be resolved. Our personalized coaching with youth enables them to explore a host of issues relevant to their community. Junior, a student in Samoset Middle School's life skills program, felt it was unjust that law enforcement figures around the country and in the community were being treated disrespectfully. With the simple idea of showing gratitude to @leominsterpolice , he knew he could make a difference. With the permission and support of his UWYV Champion, Francine Meigs, school administrators and fellow students, he organized a school-wide appreciation event. On a beautiful September day, Samoset's full student body lined the school driveway to cheer, greet, and thank area law enforcement for keeping their community safe. And it’ll be happening again this Friday! #uwyv #beapartofthechange #doinggood #respect #lawenforcement #socialchange #community #communityfirst #socialventure #changeisgood #makeadifference #haveapositiveimpact #socialent #beapartofthechange #youthventure #youngleading #youngleaders #raisingawareness #positivechange #changeforthebetter #dosomething #socent
