Comcast Awards Grant to Leadership Greater Hartford Youth Program

The Hartford Courant, March 26, 2015

"Leadership Greater Hartford (LGH) announced today that it has received a $2,500 grant from Comcast to support their Common Ground youth leadership program.

Common Ground is a fifteen-week program that engages high school students from the Greater Hartford area for training in leadership, diversity awareness, and community problem solving. Every year since 1988, a diverse group of 40 students, from urban and suburban high schools throughout the region, has participated in Common Ground. Bloomfield, Bulkeley, Classical Magnet, East Hartford, Glastonbury, South Windsor, Suffield, and the University High School of Science and Engineering participated in the 2014 Common Ground program. The 2015 semester begins September 23, 2015.

According to Ted Carroll, President of Leadership Greater Hartford, 'Our community needs to grow tomorrow's leaders today. Fortunately, companies like Comcast recognize this need and have stepped up in a big way to address it. We are very grateful for their belief in young people and in the future of the community.'"
