Opportunity Neighborhood Launches in Reston!
More than 200 Reston-area residents and stakeholders gathered at South Lakes High School for the October 2016 launch of Opportunity Neighborhood: RestON. What we heard from children, parents, students, teachers, social workers, employers, faith leaders and community partners was encouraging—and, more important, possible!
The RestON launch was the first opportunity to introduce the concepts of an Opportunity Neighborhood and identify issues of importance to our community that align with the focal areas of academic achievement and readiness, family resiliency and self-sufficiency, and connected and engaged youth.
