BOSTON — Young ambassadors, eighth grade students from each of the cities and towns in the state, gathered at Faneuil Hall as part of Project 351’s annual celebration.
Project 351 is a state program aimed at developing the next generation of “community-first service leaders” through youth-led service. Ambassadors are chosen from each of the commonwealth’s 351 cities and towns, from which the program takes its name, by hometown educators.
At the event, Project 351 recognized Paul Berkeley, who has overseen Faneuil Hall for more than 17 years.
Among those on-hand were event emcee WBZ-TV anchor Lisa Hughes, Gov. Charlie Baker, US Representative Ayanna Pressley, Boston Police Commissioner Willie Gross, and Project 351 founder Carolyn Casey.
