The First Light Project is recruiting mentors in the Stamford, CT area for their 2nd Cycle. First Light Project is a youth violence prevention initiative and is seeking Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans and first responders (police officers, firefighters, paramedics) for the Fall 2017 cohort starting October 4. The goal of First Light Project is to address and alleviate gun violence in the neighborhood and also be a means to help veterans and first responders deepen their connection to their community. This program takes a trauma-informed approach to foster unique supportive relationships between veterans, first responders, and youth as they share common life experiences – surviving in hostile environments and striving to cope.
