Welcome to the August edition of the STAR Center Newsletter! The STAR Center was in Columbus, Ohio last month for a national meeting convened by Youth M.O.V.E. National and FREDLA (The Family Run Executive Director Leadership Association). They held a meeting for youth and families leaders to come together from across the country to focus on Aligning the Movements: How Family and Youth Organizations Can Work Together to Further Their Movements. Members from both organizations had the opportunity to connect and learn from one another on how to better partner, coordinate their efforts and work together to support youth and family voice. Thank you to all the staff, youth, and family leaders who were involved for inviting the STAR Center to participate and contribute.
The STAR Center will feature young people every month from across the country who are making a difference in their communities and demonstrating extraordinary leadership that you need to know about! Help us make sure young people in your community are recognized and valued by nominating someone today!
