The Governor's Prevention Partnership equips, empowers, and connects organizations, communities, and families to prevent substance abuse, underage drinking, and violence among youth and promotes positive outcomes for all young people in Connecticut.
The Creative Media Design Academy, based at the Union Baptist Church in Hartford, CT is described as a unique and special summer experience. Trevor Beauford, Church Pastor, teamed up with Matthew Rivera, Program Manager, to develop and implement summer programing for youth programming during Covid-19.
The Governor’s Prevention Partnership is pleased to announce five new members were elected to its Board of Directors. Ryan McEleney, SVP, Director of HR Analytics & Technology at Webster Bank, Andrea Williams, Executive Director of ConnectiKids Inc., Lakisha Jordan, Corporate Responsibility Officer at KeyBank, Brendan McCarthy, Advisory Senior Manager at blumshaprio, and Sindhu Natarajan, President of Fidelux have each been elected as Directors serving a two-year term.
The Governor’s Prevention Partnership stands in solidarity with communities here in Connecticut and across America as we condemn unjust killings driven by institutional racism in our country. As leaders in the fight for youth prevention, we understand that our work provides an opportunity to equip mentors and practitioners with the resources they need to best support the students of color that they serve day to day. That’s why we work hand-in-hand with our national partner “MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership” to provide culturally responsive, inclusive trainings.
