september 8, 2016 %2F 5-00 pmAre you a high school student who wants to get involved in the community? Want to meet new people, have fun, and figure out what’s important to you? Then the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Youth Council is your jam!

Youth Council, a Wyman’s Teen Outreach Program®, is an outlet and space where youth plan and implement community service projects, have fun, and figure out how to make those hard decisions in life! Perhaps more than anything it’s a place where young people can build positive and caring relationships between peers and adults.

If you are interested in learning more about Youth Council come out to our annual Kickoff Picnic at Purcell Park on Thursday, September 8th at 5:00pm, shelter number 1. We will have games, free food, prizes, and talk more about the Youth Council and ways for YOU to be involved.

Beginning September 15th, we will meet EVERY Thursday from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at Blue Ridge Hall in room 309 (across from Costco on University Blvd.).
