H.E.Y.! campaign has motivated me to concientiously
and consistently say "Hi, how are you?" to every
single teenager I see in my neighborhood just
to try to help them know that they are an important
part of our community. My office is just down
the street from the Vermont Academy, so I see
a lot of teenagers on my way to and from
meetings, etc. As I've observed how they
are treated by adults in our community, I've seen
that many folks pass by them without saying a
word; these kids really do seem somehow invisible
to adults - and I used to be guilty of this myself.
Thanks to the Help Empower Youth effort,
I now have a friendly rapport with many young
people in my community and really do feel that
I am making a positive impact just by greeting
them respectfully and congenially. I also hire
teenagers in my neighbohood to do yard work and
I think it makes them feel good just to be earning
some extra money and feeling valued for their
sense of responsibility and work ethic in doing
a good job.
