Boys & Girls Club to host Youth Summit on April 19
The Youth Summit will be held on the premises of the Waynesboro Boys & Girls Club location, 302 E. Main St., Waynesboro.
News Virginian editor Jonathan Hunley will serve as the moderator for the forum, which will pose questions on issues facing the Waynesboro youth community.
in conjunction with the forum, the Club’s board of directors has issued a position paper covering issues including local school funding, city funding for nonprofit youth-service organizations and teen pregnancy. The position paper takes tough stands on those issues, pushing city leaders to take a more proactive stance in combatting teen pregnancy and providing more funds for local schools and nonprofits that work with local youths.
Augusta Free Press is a corporate partner of the Boys & Girls Club and will be on hand for the April 19 forum to report and share video from the proceedings.
