More than 150 students from across Massachusetts will join Gov. Deval Patrick for Project 351's First Leadership Reunion at the College of Holy Cross in Worcester.
The youth ambassadors, representing 351 cities and towns, served with Patrick in January 2011 and 2012 respectively at the launch of their year of service. This mid-year check-in at Holy Cross will be a day of service learning and leadership training including a town hall meeting with Patrick.
Framingham student Abby Murphy is expected to attend Saturday.
"Project 351 is designed to inspire, challenge and motivate our next generation of leaders to give back and make a significant impact in the community," said Patrick in a press release. "I am proud of the ambassadors' dedication to service and I welcome the opportunity to check back in with them on their enduring work."
The event will take place today at 10:30 a.m. a the College of the Holy Cross.
Chaired by Patrick, Project 351 celebrates service, youth leadership and the power of community to uplift and unite. Eighth-grade ambassadors from cities and towns across the state are nominated by local educators for a year of targeted leadership and service opportunities.
