GR_y2yhartfordGrafton Job Corps Center students attended the joint Center Youth 2 Youth Conference at the Hartford Job Corps Center in Connecticut.

Khristopher Brown, Scott Joao, Yarimar Hernandez, Nancy Ponce-Flores, and Vanessa Vincent represented Grafton as the Centers discussed issues and challenges facing the student body at their respective Centers. Everyone combined their ideas to brainstorm solutions and new programs that could be tested among several Centers. Among the proposals was earned “sleep-in” days, with male and female dorms having separate days. More team building programs and community service outreach were also encouraged.

A big thank you for these students for their participation and to Hartford for hosting this important event.
