Humboldt County Office of Education: Tell Your Story in a Letter to our Youth

Tell Your Story in a Letter to our Youth

Tell Your Story in a Letter to our Youth

The “Letters from the Community to our Youth Project” is a community initiative that asks adult mentors to share ideas about future career success with our area’s young people.  Sponsored by the Humboldt County Office of Education and the Northern Humboldt Union High School District’s Career Frontiers program, the project’s goal is to encourage students to believe that education and career success is achievable, and that although the challenge of pursuing educational, career, and business goals can be difficult, the rewards are well worth the effort.

“Our main goal for the Letters from the Community to our Youth Project should be to share stories with kids,” states Dr. Chris Hartley, Superintendent of Schools. “We want to collect submissions from people with diverse backgrounds and views on life from throughout our community and share their stories, lessons learned, and wisdom. This project is about the power of storytelling!”

Submission Guidelines

Please use the form on to submit a letter for consideration. Submissions should be no longer than two pages and may be edited. We want to include at least 50 letters or essays in the final publication, which will be shared with students and schools. Not all submissions will be published. You may also drop off letters at the Humboldt County Office of Education, 901 Myrtle Avenue, Eureka.
