Doing the Right Thing ~ Making a Difference
Each school year in the City of Naples, students are recognized when they Do the Right Thing. The program is designed to recognize school aged children within our community who are doing good things. The Do the Right Thing program is a community based initiative which brings the Naples Police Department together with our community, local businesses, local schools, community organizations, city recreational centers, and most importantly, our youth. The goal of this program is to reinforce exemplary behavior while helping to build self esteem. It is also our intent to build bridges of trust throughout our community and to publicly thank our youth for their positive deeds and contributions to this community.
This year, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida has joined in this partnership to increase the recognition of young people in our community who exemplify the characteristics of responsibility, respect, service, compassion and courage. Seven of these young people have been selected to receive addition recognition for their deeds that most closely connect with the Museum’s mission.
