Greater New Bedford Healthy Communities, Healthy Youth Initiative
"The Greater New Bedford Healthy Communities, Healthy Youth Initiative" was presented to more than 150 community members and local organizations today at the Hawthorne Country Club in Dartmouth, with the goal of uniting all sectors of the community that interact with the city's young people.
The new program is based on a national model currently being implemented in high-risk communities across the country. Created by the nonprofit Search Institute, the program is being sponsored locally by Southcoast Hospitals RAPPP program and aims to create a stronger community for our young adults by emphasizing positive developmental assets.
