STAMFORD, CT — In the spirit of National Teenager Day on March 21, Building One Community (B1C) — The Center for Immigrant Opportunity, reflected on the profound impacts made by youth volunteers across Stamford.

"With teenagers playing a pivotal role in our organization, we take this moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to the hundreds of high school students who have dedicated their time and talents to support our mission," said Anka Badurina, PhD, Executive Director, B1C, in a news release.

"Having amassed thousands of volunteer hours last year alone, these industrious young individuals from local public and private high schools have become a backbone of B1C’s community efforts. Their incredible commitment has enriched our diverse programs, including English Language Learning Youth led initiatives, the Homework Club, and various general community events."

In celebrating National Teenager Day, B1C especially recognizes the true spirit of volunteerism exemplified by youth. They are inspired by their willingness to serve and their capacity to bridge cultural divides through education and support.
