Alliance for Community Transformation volunteers set up shop at this year’s Garlic Fest Kids Tent to make sensory bottles with youth.
Feel like you’ve been too cooped up these last couple of months? Many ward off cabin fever by choosing to volunteer to stay active.
ACT is currently recruiting for a Social Media and Development VISTA. We’re looking for an enthusiastic and organized individual to write and research grants and develop a social media outreach plan. Check out the full description HERE.
Giving Big at the Day of Caring
ACT Youth Empowerment Committee Members teamed up with Teens 4 Change and United Ways of Bennington County on the Day of Caring during National Volunteer Week! Bravo! And THANK YOU!!!!
The first ever Hogwarts Family Day event was produced by ACT’s Youth Empowerment Committee as an intergenerational event for the community. Nearly 250 persons were transported into a clever, fun, free community event celebrating all things Harry Potter!
Thank you for your hard work committee members and thank you to all of the community members and businesses that showed such incredible support for this worthwhile event!!!
May is Vermont Youth Appreciation Month
Four years ago, a group of Bennington area youth drafted a statewide resolution to establish a Vermont Youth Appreciation Day. This celebration was a call to action in response to YRBS data that reflected the low rates of VT youth that feel they matter to our communities.
A joint resolution was passed and this home-grown event has blossomed significantly in the years since. This year on Thursday, April 28th at 12:30 pm, Governor Peter Shumlin will sign a proclamation declaring the month of May as Vermont Youth Appreciation Month in his Ceremonial Office at the statehouse in Montpelier.
