|County Executive’s Youth Advisory Committee to Hold Teen Forum
Young people will have an opportunity to share their experiences, insights and solutions to problems with County Executive Ike Leggett, members of the County Council and representatives from Montgomery County Public Schools at a Teen Forum to be held on Saturday, May 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Montgomery Blair High School, 51 University Blvd., E., Silver Spring.
The free event is being organized by members of Leggett’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) that provides Montgomery County teens the opportunity to develop leadership skills while serving their communities. Appointed by the County Executive, YAC members from across the County work to strengthen students’ voices in the schools through “speak outs” and contact with County government.
The forum will include “speak-out” sessions facilitated by YAC members, entertainment provided by award-winning progressive hip-hop artist Christylez Bacon, a fashion show by the Red Sprinkle Fashion Club from Excel Beyond the Bell and a dance performance by the Sports Academies’ Latin clubs.
Bus transportation will be provided from the Mid-County, White Oak, East County, Lawton and Germantown community recreation centers.
Space is limited, so pre-registration is recommended. To pre-register, visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/rec, go to Registration and sign up for course number 384683.
