Lauderhill Students Continue to Create Change

Standard

As the summer concludes, the Lauderhill Y teens continue to make progress on their community action plan.  Over 50 Lauderhill teens spent their summer at the Y in the Teen Leadership Institute engaging in a variety of activities including meeting numerous times with FIU professors and city leaders to continue their Art of Community project with funding from the Community Foundation of Broward.  This fall, a full scale public art project will be installed around the Overpath, creating a community gathering place where once there was high crime and unsafe conditions. The teens were featured in the Sun Sentinel for their leadership and continued progress towards their goals.  We are so proud to work on behalf of these students.
