We are celebrating our 21st annual Taking Flight to Change Middle School Summit and the theme is Together We Can Make A Difference. Middle schools in Sussex County (nearly 5000 kids!) will be participating by viewing powerful videos tailored to our students, taking part in daily Kindness Challenges and listening to empowering speakers. We are confident this week’s events will energize and motivate students just as it has in the past 20 years! Throughout the week, we hope you check us out daily at noon for our Facebook LIVE event and message of the day. A special thank you to our event sponsor, Visions Federal Credit Union, as well as our supporter Selective Insurance Foundation.
