FOCUSING ON YOUTH ISSUES
Wednesday, October 29, 2014
St. Luke's Church in East Greenwich
6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
The EGHS Teen Leadership Consortium (TLC) is hosting a ‘Meet the Candidates Night’ on Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 from 6:30 pm – 8:45 pm at St. Luke’s Church. The purpose of the event is to enhance community awareness about youth related issues, provide candidates an opportunity to connect with young people and offer East Greenwich residents a different kind of opportunity for residents to interact with candidates.
Throughout the evening, each candidate will be introduced by the students and allotted 3 (three) minutes to provide an overview of their thoughts pertaining to youth related issues. Afterwards, candidates will be encouraged to mingle with students and all attendees in an informal setting as a way to connect with residents. The program is youth led in its entirety and format will be developed by the teens.
The TLC is a youth leadership group which has helped create parent forums, a high school club fair, and improved school schedule changes. They have been working on this initiative for several months.
TLC coordinator Bob Houghtaling stated, “In short, the future is dependent on today’s young people. With this type of youth led program, it’s a wonderful way to start.”
As a supporter of youth activities and empowerment, the East Greenwich Academy Foundation is proud to co-sponsor the event as a unique leadership development opportunity for all involved.
If you have any questions about the TLC or the event, please feel free to contact TLC coordinator, Bob Houghtaling at 401-230-2246.
