Rep. Peter Tercyak joined his legislative colleagues and members of the Governor’s Prevention Partnership at the state Legislative Office Building to announce the results of grants in support of partnership programs across the state.

With a focus on Connecticut’s youth, The Governor’s Prevention Partnership is a statewide public-private alliance, building a strong, healthy future workforce through leadership in mentoring and prevention of violence, underage drinking, alcohol and drug abuse.

In honor of National Mentoring Month, the Governor’s Prevention Partnership held a press conference to highlight $71,000 in grants made possible through the Connecticut Mentoring Fund, a public-private effort to support mentoring practices in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Britain, New Haven, Norwalk, Plainville, Stamford and Westport.
