Northfield youth featured in America’s Promise Alliance video

Back in late January, I blogged about Northfield being named one of America’s 100 best communities for young people by America’s Promise Alliance.

In a Feb. 1 Northfield News article titled Video highlights Northfield youth by Megan Proft, she wrote:

Northfield youth were highlighted in a recent video produced by America’s Promise, a national collaborative dedicated to the well-being of children and youth. High school students and Mayor’s Youth Council members Ruth Amerman, Sam Ruby and Adrian Lazaro were featured in a video that profiled local youth initiatives, such as the Northfield Union of Youth and the Skateboard Coalition. The video was shown at the Minnesota Summit on Youth Development held on Dec. 5. Soccer coach Jorge Zuccolotto and teachers Bubba Sullivan and Jennifer Lompart were featured in the video too.

Here’s the video, in two parts. Thanks to HCI’s Zach Pruitt for the alert.

    I second Jerry’s comment. Just goes to show that teens want to be heard and respected, just like everyone else.
