Milford’s 4th Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI), a collaborative effort between the Milford Health Department, Milford Public Schools, the United Way of Milford, and Kids Count of Milford, began this past January. PLTI was developed by the State of Connecticut’s Commission on Children to enable parents to become leading advocates for children. Cornerstones of the program are respect, validation, and a belief that when the tools of democracy are understood the public will actively engage in civic life. PLTI students participate in an 18-week program designed to provide the civic and leadership skills needed to work in the community on behalf of children. Participants also complete a community project that contributes to the well-being of Milford’s children. This year's participants are Colleen Berry, Joyce Carloto, Lindsay Carlson, Eamteong Chay, Richard Ferrari, Talina Galvez, Beth Granger, August Harrigan, Tracey Irby, Tori Lawlor, Jen Mino-Scopp, Nuha Musallam, Jane Mirmina, Kelly Nealy, Pat Pritchard, Marie Romano, Kerry Sciuto, Christine Surel, Jessica Theisen, and Larissa Watt. For more information about the program, contact PLTI coordinator Lesley Darling at the Milford Health Department (203) 783-3314.H/T to Patti Keckeisen for noticing this.
