2018 - $19,000

This funding will support the CT YOUTH FORUM and the R.I.S.E. Above campaign, which works to empower students, promote nonviolence, and build a positive school culture with strong social connections that can help students avoid risky activities. The campaign is currently in a two-year pilot in three schools: Hartford Public High School Academy of Nursing and Health Sciences, Windsor High School, and Connecticut River Academy in East Hartford. This grant will fund the second year of the pilot, as well as an evaluation of the project.
