When Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton hired 17-year-old Caleb Laieski to serve as his part-time "Youth and Diversity Liaison" in late March, it drew a statewide spotlight to programs for young people throughout Arizona’s 91 cities and towns.
Laieski, part of Stanton’s innovative and cost-saving advocates-on-loan program, will work to
raise awareness about bullying and diversity. Around Arizona, other cities and towns are also
making headlines and garnering praise for efforts to engage and serve young people.
