LAKE PLACID, NY (April 17) – The Lake Placid Business Association, Lake Placid-Wilmington Connecting Youth and Communities Coalition (CYC) and the Lake Placid Central School District are pleased to announce the launch of an innovative new program - CU2C, Connecting You to the Community - designed to strengthen relationships between our teens and their community.
The program, beginning the week of April 25 will integrate High School Juniors and Seniors with local businesses in order for teens to get a sense of how our local economy works. It also provides the business an opportunity to interact with students in order to gain an understanding of what they are looking for in our community.
“We are very excited to introduce our new program CU2C,” said CYC Coordinator Tina Clark. “We hope all Lake Placid and Wilmington Juniors and Seniors will utilize the opportunity to learn more about what makes our community operate.”
The interactive program is also supported through funding from the Stewart’s Foundation/Holiday Match program, which has benefited community youth organizations since 1986.
This program is designed to improve the relationship with the teens in our community by directly engage them with local businesses in order to increase the sense of community. By nurturing this relationship we are planting the seeds for the future; a healthy and vibrant community.
A recent survey shows a disconnect between the business community and local teens. 79% of students said their community did not notice when they did a good job. 59% of students said they do not feel the community is proud when they do well. 60% of students said their community does not encourage them to do their best. These numbers are from the April 2012 Prevention Needs Assessment survey at the Lake Placid Central School.
Build teen ambassadors for our community. Help teens discover the uniqueness and all the opportunities of this community for summer jobs, jobs after they graduate/college breaks and to grow roots here. Everyone, (businesses, families, teens) need to better understand the community and nourish it so that it can thrive. Better understand our teens and what teens are looking for in this community. Receive input from teens on how to improve community.
