Last night Mayor James Barberio along with police chief Paul Phillips, Tony Bonavitcola, PAL Director, Lt. Brian Dowd, and Sonny Sullivan-Fullerton, Youth Counselor helped kick off the youth mentoring program. Many volunteers within our community were present last night for the first meeting, in this meeting the volunteers were informed about the requirements of the program and the logistics of how it will work.

Mayor James Barberio thanks all volunteers because without you all, this program would not be possible. The children are the heart of the community and this program helps to ensure all children are actively learning about leadership, peer pressure, self-confidence, bullying and to be aware of the increase of drug use within town.
