The City of Lawrenceville has been awarded the Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma Grant to support the city’s vision that will lead to improved behavioral health, empowered residents, reductions in trauma, and sustained community changes. The grant requires the creation of an Advisory Board to help guide the projects and programs developed to further engage with youth and their families.

Learn about the Summer of Impact

Summer of Impact is a collaborative initiative to help high school students discover their God-given purpose, passion and influence thru paid internships with local businesses.  It leverages the eight weeks of summer to impact the six sectors of Lawrenceville—local businesses, government, schools, neighborhoods, churches and non-profits—by providing enrichment and leadership engagement opportunities for youth. Leadership development training will be offered through Impact 46. Learn more about Lawrenceville's Class of 2022 Summer of Impact program here
