Vermont Community Foundation Sends Kurn Hattin Youth to Leadership Summit
December 4, 2012 | Westminster, VT – The Vermont Community Foundation’s Crosby-Gannett Fund is sponsoring a Kurn Hattin child to the National Fellowship of Child Care Executives (NFCCE) Youth Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. in June 2013. Being able to go to our nation’s capital is one of those opportunities which remains in a child’s memory for life. Children from children’s homes around the country who are attending the Summit will participate in leadership workshops and historical and cultural visits.
The days and nights will be full of discussion and enriching activities that the children have so far only read about in books and on the Internet. This experience encourages them to keep their vision and their goals to be leaders and to always do the right thing. Thank you Crosby-Gannett Fund advisors for supporting this opportunity for a Kurn Hattin child. Established in 1894, Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster, Vermont is a charitable home and school for children, ages 6-15, who are affected by tragedy, social or economic hardship, or other disruption in family life.
