September Monthly Media

Community Collaboration through Volunteering

Teaching kids to find common ground with those who wear a different uniform or come from a different background can manifest more positive outcomes in adulthood. That’s why parents, mentors and volunteers in children’s lives are critical to teaching them how to cope and overcome challenges. Learn more about how the recent Little League World Series provides an example for communities coming together for success in IYI’s Monthly Column for September.
