The Mayor of Greenville, Mike Bowers, presents a City Proclamation to the Gateway Youth Programs honoring November as National Runaway Prevention Month and supporting the Green Light Project. Accepting the proclamation is students and staff of the Gateway Youth program.

The proclamation asks that the community observe this month by supporting the young people of the community and empowering families. We must aid our youth with opportunities and support necessary for their success. Also we must challenge adults to act as mentors and role models for youth, guiding them towards available resources to make safe, healthy, and productive choices for their future.

Youth will be handing out over 300 green lights donated by Rexel Company in Greenville, so that residents in the community can show their support of the project and our youth. Again, remember to turn on your porch light and GLOW GREEN, to show your support of the communities’ youth every night during the month of November.

Added new this year is a “Green Light Spotter” that will be awarding pizzas during the month when they are out SPOTTING residents with their green light on.
