Greater Green Bay named a top community for youth… and you helped
The Greater Green Bay area has been named One of the Nation’s 100 Best Communities for Young People. The “100 Best” designation recognizes those places that make youth a priority by implementing programs that help keep children in school and prepare them for college.
Green Bay’s application made several references to UW-Green Bay’s contributions, including:
• The Phuture Phoenix program and the Institute for Learning Partnership, for collaboration in addressing education-related goals;
• Both Phuture Phoenix and Camp Lloyd and their “support for the most vulnerable young people”;
• UW-Green Bay summer opportunities were included in “youth leadership” and “effective education” categories;
• UW-Green Bay and Bellin College nursing graduate Maria Mercado-Adams was singled out for her impressive personal success story.
