Kelly Finn Störmer, COO, National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations, selected to participate in prestigious Presidential Leadership Scholars program

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Presidential Leadership Scholars (PLS) program announced this week that the National Association of Veteran Serving Organization’s (NAVSO) Chief Operating Officer, Kelly Finn Störmer, has been selected as one of the 60 Scholars chosen for the program’s sixth annual class. PLS serves as a catalyst for a diverse network of leaders brought together to collaborate and make a difference in the world as they learn about leadership through the lens of the presidential experiences of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson.

The sixth class was selected after a rigorous application and review process. Scholars were selected based on their leadership growth potential and their personal leadership projects aimed at improving civic engagement or social good by addressing a problem or need in their community.
Over the course of six months, Scholars will travel to each participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key former administration officials, business and civic leaders, and leading academics. They will study and put into practice varying approaches to leadership and exchange ideas to help strengthen their impact in their communities. The program kicks off, today, January 28th in Washington, D.C.

The latest class joins an active network of 298 Scholars who are applying lessons learned through the program to make a difference in the U.S. and around the world. Examples of these Scholar-led efforts include providing employment and mentorship to veterans, helping adjudicated youth to improve job skills and attain a positive self-image, empowering clinicians to speak with patients about safe storage of firearms, and deploying much needed resources in the wake of natural disasters.
Since the program began in 2015, Scholars have consistently reported remarkable growth in leadership skills, responsibilities, and opportunities for impact. For example, 91 percent of Scholars reported their sense of confidence or purpose as a leader changed since beginning PLS, and 96 percent of Scholars indicated their exposure to and appreciation of a wider variety of perspectives increased since beginning PLS.

National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges Receives $900,000 NoVo Foundation Grant to Address Sex Trafficking

The NCJFCJ is the Nation’s Oldest Judicial Membership Organization

The NCJFCJ announced a grant from the NoVo Foundation to support systems-based solutions to commercial sexual exploitation.

NCJFCJ intends to close these on-ramps to commercial sexual exploitation for youth by addressing conditions in the juvenile and family justice system that continue to foster trafficking.”

— Judge John J. Romero, Jr.

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced a $900,000 grant from the NoVo Foundation to support systems-based solutions to commercial sexual exploitation. The grant will support the NCJFCJ project to identify and promote promising practices in juvenile and family courts to address child sex trafficking.

The funding is a part of The Life Story Grants, a $10 million, three-year investment in survivor-centered programs in the U.S. The NCJFCJ is among 15 projects awarded to address the systemic failures that allow the sex trade to thrive and harm the most marginalized communities, including girls and women of color, as well as trans, LGBTQ, immigrant, and Indigenous girls and women.

After receiving more than 400 letters of inquiry and consulting with a panel of survivor leaders, the NCJFCJ was selected based on its targeted approach and its commitment to survivor engagement along with partners Rights4Girls, National American Indian Court Judges Association, National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project, Awaken, and Toni McKinley, LLC. The NCJFCJ understands that there must be a system-wide response and a cultural shift toward holding perpetrators and buyers responsible.

“The NCJFCJ has been at the forefront of educating judges and court staff in the area of commercial sexual exploitation and have engaged experts and incorporated survivor voices to build a national foundational understanding for judges and court staff of the needs in the field,” said Joey Orduna Hastings, NCJFCJ CEO. “We are honored to be selected for The Life Story Grants to expand our work to address domestic child sex trafficking and promote promising practices in juvenile and family courts across the country.”

Key strategies and initiatives include:
• Establish a Project Advisory Committee and engage and host a roundtable with a wide variety of judges, survivors of trafficking, victim advocates, professionals, and other training and technical assistance providers to serve and lead;
• Implement a multiple-day all-sites meeting for courts that address the commercial sexual exploitation of youth to foster peer-to-peer learning;
• Conduct court technical assistance site visits with juvenile and family courts to start new programming, a specialty docket or court for commercially exploited youth;
• Conduct court trauma assessments to help address issues around environment, policy, and practice to ensure a trauma-informed approach to better serve children and families;
• Convene a Youth Advisory Council to provide youth survivor voice to project activities; and
• Create and disseminate a resource guide on how to implement court-based strategies specific to address identifying commercial and sexually exploited youth, building collaborative partnerships, and providing trauma responsive services and programs.

"Youth who have been commercially and sexually exploited often become involved in the juvenile and family justice system for offenses related to being trafficked such as theft, curfew violations, running away, substance use and distribution," said NCJFCJ past president Judge John J. Romero, Jr., Children's Court Division of the Second Judicial District Court of New Mexico. "Oftentimes their circumstances are overlooked or misinterpreted by those working in the justice system including judges. Through our new partnership with the NoVo Foundation and judicial leadership, the NCJFCJ intends to close these on-ramps to commercial sexual exploitation for youth by addressing conditions in the juvenile and family justice system that continue to foster trafficking."

About the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ):
Founded in 1937, the Reno, Nev.-based National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, is the nation’s oldest judicial membership organization and focused on improving the effectiveness of our nation’s juvenile and family courts.

Garrett Hofer Explains the Benefits of an Active Family

Garrett Hofer CT

NEW LONDON, CT, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — From reducing the risk of type two diabetes and heart disease to boosting mental and physical strength, exercise has several benefits for people of all ages, including kids. Garrett Hofer of East Lyme, CT, is a working father of two. He is also a former college rugby athlete and currently coaches a community rugby league in which his kids participate. Here are some suggestions on how to make health a family affair.

First, Garrett Hofer suggests picking activities your family enjoys. Being active can and should be fun, not a chore. Your family is more likely to stick to a healthy routine if everyone looks forward to the activities.

Growing up in Colorado, Garrett Hofer has always loved the outdoors. Since starting a family, he’s instilled that love of nature in his kids.

“I love immersing myself in nature and taking time to enjoy the amazing experiences that many people never see or pay attention to [like] sunrises, sunsets, the natural world coming to life each day, and getting to truly philosophize when nobody else is around,” Garrett Hofer said.

Some activities they enjoy most include swimming, riding bikes, sledding, playing at the beach, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding.

As a lifelong athlete, Garrett Hofer also loves participating in sports with his family, whether it’s coaching their rugby team or cheering them on as they play basketball and soccer. If you or your kids aren’t on a community or school sports team, you can still invite friends/family to participate in a local pick-up game!

Families that play together tend to be healthier and happier, as regular exercise can boost health and reduce the risk of mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

More on Garrett Hofer CT

Garrett Hofer has dedicated his life and career to helping individuals, families, and businesses. In addition to his full-time job, he volunteers with the ACP Veterans Mentor Program, where he helps veterans transition from the military to civilian enterprises.

In 2017, Garrett Hofer co-founded the Shoreline Spartans Rugby Team with Michael Meyer.
The team’s first practice was on April 5, 2017. The program started with seven kids but has since reached about 40. The league includes a grade-school and high school division. This summer, the Spartans plan to launch a one-week summer rugby day camp for youth. Soon, Garrett Hofer and Meyer plan to add an adult league as well.

Michel Andy Townsend Explains Why Pro Days Are Important

Michel Andy Townsend Football Coach

MARSHALL, TX, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2019/20 NFL season is about to come to a climax with Superbowl LIV. But that doesn’t mean football players will hang up their shoes until spring. Athletes from New York to L.A. will be prepping for the next season. College NFL hopefuls, in particular, will be stepping up their training to prepare for spring Pro Days. Michel Andy Townsend, football coach, has mentored many star athletes over the course of his 14-plus year career, including some players who’ve gone on to play pro. He explains the importance of Pro Days.

Pro days provide an efficient, easy way for recruiters to gather stats on multitudes of NFL draft-eligible players in a short period, Andy Townsend football coach says. The recruiters administer tests and workouts to gauge players’ strengths and abilities.

This may sound similar to the Combine. But the two are not one and the same. Combines are typically where coaches and general managers narrow down their list of prospects. They also gather health data at this time.

For some players, who did not attend the Combine, Pro Day might be their only chance to demonstrate their aptitude on certain Combine drills. But even those who attended the Combine, which is typically a few weeks before Pro Day, should attend Pro days.

Often, recruiters already have a shortlist of prospects when Pro day comes around and use the opportunity to confirm or change the grade they gave that player earlier in the season. They’ll also gather more intel about the player. This includes not just their athletic aptitude but their personality, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Coaches are looking for players strong of mind as well as body, those who are respected by their coaches and teammates and who respect and support their teammates in return.

As all players and coaches know, only the best of the best go pro. Being an exceptional, dedicated, and well-rounded player is essential if you want to have a chance at making the cut.

More on Michel Andy Townsend Football Coach

Michel Andy Townsend earned his bachelor’s degree from East Texas Baptist University in kinesiology and a master’s degree from Greenville University in coaching. He’s been on the staff of two national champions: Texas A&M Commerce (2017) and Navarro Bulldogs (2010). Part of the inaugural football class at ETBU in 2000 and a 2004 graduate, Michel Andy Townsend has since held multiple titles including Associate Head Coach, Director of Football Operations, Offensive Line Coach, Defensive line Coach, and Tight Ends Coach. Michel Andy Townsend also founded the Lone Star Pro Day held at Texas A&M Commerce, which gives players from small schools an opportunity to showcase their talents to NFL personnel. Throughout the years, Michel Andy Townsend has coached multiple players who have gone on to play in the NFL, including DJ Hayden, Ethan Westbrook, Dustin Vaughan, Craig Watts, Luis Perez, and Michael Onuoha. He also designed a football camp app for Android and iPhone.

Saquon Barkley, NFL Star Running Back, Video Shows Deep Connection to Kobe Bryant

Saquon Barkley (left) Kobe Bryant (right)

“I write your phrase Mamba Mentality on my cleats before practices and games because I know that attitude is what it takes to be special.” – Saquon Barkley

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — For a generation of athletes in all sports, the shocking death of Kobe Bryant at the age of 41 leaves a massive void. Bryant was an inspiration to so many no matter if you were involved in any sport or not. Now, count Saquon Barkley as feeling as if a part of his athletic world has been ripped from him.

Even though the two were in different sports, Bryant was a huge inspiration to Barkley as an athlete. Barkley wrote “Mamba Mentality” on his cleats before practices and games, in homage to the Lakers and NBA great who challenged legions of players to “attack what’s in front of you with passion and purpose, without fear and doubt and without an ounce of quit.’’

It would seem Barkley personally new Bryant due to such aspirations to be like him as an athlete, but Barkley, the star New York Giants running back, never met Bryant in person. The two only shared a social media interaction back in July of 2019 after Barkley posted a video on the UNINTERRUPTED website, an open letter to one of his idols.

In the video, Barkley recounted to Bryant the poem “Ozymandias,’’ about a traveler who comes across an ancient kingdom that is now covered in sand. His video goes as follows:

“At the end of it, all that remains is a broken statue of the King Ozymandias with the inscriptions: ‘Look on my Works, ye mighty, and despair!’

“But there is nothing to see except sand. This poem makes me think what it actually takes to leave a lasting legacy. The best legacy starts humbly and lasts long after you’re reign is over. You, you have proven that. You used to shoot balled up socks into your laundry baskets. I remember the first time I put on football pads when I was 8. I felt like Peter Parker putting on his Spider-Man suit for the first time.

“You’re not born with legacy. Someone recently told me when I was born there were only 10 Saquon’s. When you were born, there were only 14 Kobe’s. And now there’s thousands. Can you believe that? Legacy is not something you can buy, borrow, steal or anoint to yourself. It can only be created through impacting others in a positive way.

“You gave Giannis [Antetokounmpo] a piece of your Mamba Mentality and he made it his own. He’s now an MVP. I write your phrase Mamba Mentality on my cleats before practices and games because I know that attitude is what it takes to be special. Your legacy isn’t about trophies, rings, money or material objects. Your legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of athletes and fans around the world, like myself.

“King Ozymandias may not remain, but the Mamba Mentality legacy will live on forever. I just hope one day I can inspire others the way you inspired me.’’

Bryant responded to this message by tweeting, “Love my brotha” with the hashtag “#yourturn.”

Lois Webb of Idaho Success Center to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a world where the stress of everyday life can hit us hard, our family is our pillar of strength and support where the entire family gains a real comforting sense of belonging. Research shows that having solid family relationships are essential to our well-being and pivotal to how we connect and interact with the outside world. But every family has their ups and downs and life is not without its challenges and struggles.

Lois is an exceptional Licensed and Certified Life coach providing the most optimal tools to resolve conflicts and facilitate relationships so families can truly connect.

“When I assist parents in sharpening their parenting skills, I utilize the most practical resources available,” says Lois. “Although raising children can be extremely rewarding it naturally has it’s frustrating and overwhelming moments. By objectively assisting each family member to navigate through difficult situations they experience a different mindset and establish more highly effective ways of communicating with one another. It’s especially gratifying helping children and teenagers find clarity and well-balanced lives.”

A loving mom of 5 and grandmother of seventeen grandchildren, Lois is familiar with quintessential meaning of a nurturing family environment. Bullied as a child, she was fortunate to have the support and the encouragement of her mother that helped her recognize her strengths and literally blossom. When she got married, although regrettably after 35 years after it didn’t work out, Lois faced a painful time of great loss, she stood strong and encouraged herself to embrace a positive future and move forward even after the heartbreak of divorce. After seeking out a coach who brought her the proper guidance to transition with reassurance, Lois knew becoming a Family coach was her life’s purpose and she has never looked back.

“I’m familiar with the heartache in relationships but now I thrive in the joy of compassion and tolerance and the ability to heal through forgiveness,” says Lois. “As a life coach I offer the most innovative solution-focused tools to work through issues such as encouraging forgiveness. By allowing people to make mistakes, because none of us are perfect can healing truly occur.”

Lois’s coaching sessions are tailored to each and every family member since every person is an individual with different needs. In order to help, each of her clients begin strengthening relationships with one another.

Lois says, whether it’s God or the universe, there is something that is bigger than we are. Through careful observation of the family circumstances, she helps them establish positive thinking with programs that are tailored to each family that is both sustainable and effective.

“I find so much joy especially working with children and teens seeing them progress and acquire joy from my coaching sessions as their family connects on a deeper level and achieves happiness through understanding each other’s unique gifts,” says Lois.

“Families are the core of our civilization,” says Lois. “If our families can stay together amicably with love and respect, we can make a difference in so many additional lives. Helping our children truly value relationships and move forward with positivity is a key. Looking to the future compassionately will give them bright, successful futures because love is the answer and forgiveness is the joy to our life’s journey.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Lois Webb in an interview with Jim Masters on Tuesday January 28th at 1 p.m. EST.

BELOVED BY VIRTOSU – Experience the passionate story of Gheorghe VIRTOSU and his influential Icons.

Gheorghe Virtosu

From 21 April 2020 to 23 May 2020, VIRTOSU ART GALLERY will be showing a dazzling array of Gheorghe VIRTOSU’s best works in the exhibition Beloved by VIRTOSU.

When contemplating a painting, the viewer delves into its depth, very much like sky-divers letting themselves plunge in the infinity of heaven.”

— Gheorghe Virtosu

NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gracious and beautiful. Insistent and introvert. As to Icons and as themselves. Curvy and jagged. They are observing and sleeping. Over two decades, the British artist Gheorghe VIRTOSU depicts the female form as a colorful transfiguration, always full of desire and passion.

From 21 April 2020 to 23 May 2020, VIRTOSU ART GALLERY will be showing a dazzling array of Gheorghe VIRTOSU’s best works in the exhibition Beloved by VIRTOSU – The Power of the Icons. The exhibition is created in collaboration with DVG GROUP CORP, NY. It presents a total of 24 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Among these are Umm Kulthum Bint Muhammad (2017), and other masterpieces from the gallery’s collection. Beloved by VIRTOSU – The Power of the Icons presents Gheorghe VIRTOSU’s artistic progression in the light of his Icons, and therefore the artist must not share the spotlight with anyone.

Life and art

Gheorghe VIRTOSU is one of the most important and acclaimed artists in contemporary art. He is known for his capacity to renew himself and notorious for his intellectual – some would say superman – lifestyle. His passion for creation infuses and shapes not only his artistic practice but also his writings.

VIRTOSU’s art is often political, social, and is created as a response to our time. However, it is also private. In June 2015, one of his most productive years, he said: “The work I create is my diary.” The gallery exhibition provides a unique insight into how VIRTOSU’s friends, family, and fans challenged and inspired his artistic develop­ment. For each new Icon, the story of the works changes, and VIRTOSU’s knowledge and experiences are the source of inspiration for the artist’s challenging, otherworldly, and beautiful compositions.

The Power of the Image

Despite Gheorghe VIRTOSU’s obsession with depicting the motif of the artist and the Icons, he never works with live Icons. Instead, he works from memory, dreams, and imagination. With high drama and self-irony, VIRTOSU creates a coded image of an affectionate and often historical fact that has a distinct relationship between the artist and the depicted. In his dramatic staging, VIRTOSU depicts the com­plexity of his abstract perspective and the gaze into a world full of driving forces.

VIRTOSU’s eventful private life has prompted many to perceive his works as direct and truthful testaments of history. Even people beloved by VIRTOSU have been locked in two-dimensional visuals of who they were as characters. The depiction of the person is always the entire truth about the real person behind the canvas.

The women have all – directly or indirectly – influenced VIRTOSU’s art. The exhibition retells the value these women provide to the world, casting them as much more than VIRTOSU’s beloved muses or favorite faces. First and foremost, they were reflective, sophisticated, and energetic women with their own life stories. Their stories are now being told at VIRTOSU ART GALLERY with new attention to the power of images and the artist’s dramatic staging.

The exhibition has been organized in a unique collaboration with DVG GROUP CORP-US.
