LAUNCH MY IDEA NEW!
High School students - Do you have a talent, hobby or passion you'd like to share with others? Do you have an idea for turning this talent, hobby or passion into a youth program or activity?
Ellington Youth Services is excited to present "LAUNCH MY IDEA," a platform for talented high school students to develop and lead innovative programs and activities for Ellington youth.
The process is simple. You think of an idea for a one-day or multi-day program or activity, then share the idea with Youth Services and if selected, you will work with Youth Services to develop a project plan for a youth program. Please see more details in the LAUNCH MY IDEA flyer and letter below. The proposal can be downloaded, then complete and return to Youth Services.
