Kids as Peacemakers grateful for award

To the editor:

Kids As Peacemakers wishes to express our gratitude to Newburyport Youth Services for the honor of receiving the Newburyport Youth Asset Builder Award in a ceremony at City Hall on March 28.

We were particularly honored to be among a great group of individuals and organizations who are dedicated to the children and youth of our community.

We remain grateful to the greater Newburyport community for its support of our efforts including the Peace Mural Program, Peace in the Park, the Youth Leadership Camp, the Week Without Violent Video Games and Apps, and the Memorial Reading of Names of Children Killed by Gun Violence.

As an all-volunteer organization, Kids As Peacemakers depends on the efforts of many volunteers who seek to “inspire kids and teens to be peacemakers.”

This award recognizes their dedication and commitment. We welcome any who wish to join this work.
