The Youth Task Force at Milford High School selected 20 community leaders to be part of the Silhouette Project. The goal is to reach all ages, from youth to adults, with positive messages that will promote healthy successful lives not burdened with the negative effects of drug and alcohol abuse. Community leaders posed for a life-size cardboard cutout that will include a positive life or anti-drug message. The Youth Task Force put a spin on the usual “Silhouette Project” and included the actual picture on each cutout so it’s recognizable in the community. We plan to unveil the project in the fall.
We have added some new media to our Gallery Tab above, go check it out to see some of the cool things our youth have accomplished!
