What's Happening This Month At Breed Middle School
LYNN PUBLIC SCHOOLS STUDENT TO PARTICIPATE IN STATEWIDE YOUTH-LED SERVICE INITIATIVE - Eighth Grade Student Selected to Participate as Project 351 Ambassador
Janet Ogbeiwi, a student at Breed Middle School has been selected as Lynn’s 2021 Project 351 Ambassador. Ogbeiwi joins eighth graders representing the Commonwealth’s 351 cities and towns for a transformational year of youth-led service, leadership development, and civic engagement. Since its founding in 2011, 4,122 eighth graders have developed the courage and skills to lead change as Ambassadors. This year, Project 351’s young leaders will surpass more than one million neighbors positively impacted through their service.
Ogbeiwi was selected by Breed to represent Lynn for an inspiring ethic of service and the values of kindness, compassion, humility, and gratitude.
“Janet is a valuable member of the Breed community and is excited to play an important role working with other leaders throughout the state and completing the Service Leader project,” said Marianne Duncan, 8th grade guidance counnselor.
“Project 351 kicks off our second decade inspired by the compassionate leadership of more than 365 unsung heroes and quiet leaders. At this time of critical community need and increased polarization, Ambassadors’ demonstrate the extraordinary impact realized when we unite in common cause,” said Carolyn Casey, executive director and founder of Project 351.
Ambassadors are currently engaged in a four-week Service Leadership Academy to build the knowledge and skills to lead and serve. Highlights include a Community Meeting with First Lady Lauren Baker and anti-bias, anti-discrimination training through the Playbook Initiative, a partnership with the Boston Celtics.
On Sunday, March 7th, Ambassadors will celebrate the official start of their service year at a virtual “Launch” featuring remarks from Governor Charlie Baker and honoring the legacy of Civil Rights hero and Congressman John Lewis. Launch will include the introduction of the Class of 2021 and messages of congratulations from leaders including Senator Ed Markey, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, and Governor Deval Patrick.
Launch marks the start of ten months of community-building and transformational service in support of high-impact nonprofit partners including Cradles to Crayons, Hope & Comfort, Wonderfund, and hundreds of food pantries across the state.
About Project 351:
Founded in 2011, Project 351 fosters unity and strengthens the ethic of service through the engagement and enrichment of an eighth-grade Ambassador from every city and town in Massachusetts. Annually, Ambassadors — who exemplify the values of kindness, compassion, humility, and gratitude — are selected to engage in a transformative year of youth-led service. Through Project 351, Ambassadors gain skills for a lifetime of service, strengthen the ethic of civic engagement, and scale service impact to address the causes and consequences of poverty. In 2021, Ambassadors will mark one million neighbors served. Project 351 is funded entirely by the private sector and individuals. Its mission is made possible by the generosity and civic engagement of private sector and civic leaders including the Martin Richard Foundation, John Hancock, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Mabel Louise Riley Foundation, Michael T. Carmen and Pamela Lederer, The HYM Investment Group LLC, The Foundation To Be Named Later, Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, and media partner WBZ-TV.
