On Friday, April 11th, 17 Danbury parents graduated from our People Empowering People (PEP) parent leadership program. At left are the graduates and their children who performed at the graduation held at Hatter’s Park. Many of them also traveled to Hartford in March for Early Childhood Advocacy Day, where they spoke with State Representatives Bob Godfrey and David Arconti, and State Senator Mike McLachlan. Many thanks to the facilitators, childcare providers and donors who made this possible, especially the Danbury Public School District Extended Learning Program, TJX Companies, and State of Connecticut Parent Trust.
Our communities need leaders and empowered individuals create positive action. UConn PEP Communities helps individuals build on their unique strengths and life experiences.
