New program helps millennials serve non-profits, social services and help with college debt

(WTNH)–On this edition of “Nyberg,” a new program set up for millennials in Connecticut. The idea is to help out non-profits, social services, and education, and help with students’ college debt.

It’s the brainchild of Old Saybrook’s Alva Greenberg, who wants to be a problem solver. The young people who serve, like Taylor Shelley, are called “fellows.”

“We’re all [in our] early 20’s all the way through 29, and most of us are in the first stages of our careers,” Shelley said. “We’re looking to promote our careers, we’re looking to better ourselves, and our community.”
