Monday is 'Be the Change Day'

The Key West City Commission has proclaimed Monday as "Be the Change Day." The program, headed by Heidi Golightly, strives to provide every child in the community the resources, skills and motivation to survive and thrive in school and in life.

In addition, each child should feel safe, loved and celebrated for who they are. "Be the Change" has been partnering with the community and the schools to provide these fundamental building blocks through mentoring and other programs. Key West police officers have been mentoring Key West High School students as part of "Be the Change."
