The issue of bullying is being addressed by a group of youths. Through the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut's "Achievers Program", minority and hispanic youths in the region will discuss anti-bullying efforts. YMCA Vice President of Advancement Maura Keenan says the program shows kids the skills they need to become leaders in society.
College aged mentors from AmeriCorps will help the youths create the anti-bullying program. Keenan says together, they will design an anti-bullying seminar led by students.
The YMCA and AmeriCorps is also working with the Hispanic Center of Greater Danbury on this program.
