I just got word of a new youth led initiative – their notice follows –
Please join us for a meeting, on February 1, 2012, at 3pm, in Room 125 at Medfield High School to introduce the Medfield Youth Action Committee (MYAC). Below is our mission statement, a little bit about our group, and what we hope to do!
Medfield Youth Action Committee (MYAC). a newly formed youth-led initiative, seeks to provide a forum for Medfield’s youth to unite with the broader community. We strive to build bridges by forming mutually beneficial relationships with community leaders.
It is our goal to:
- Act as liaisons to community leaders in developing youth policy and programs
- Provide education to youth regarding social issues with topics such as: Stress reduction, prevention, and healthy relationships
- Link youth to service, volunteer and mentoring opportunities
You are invited to this meeting because of your important leadership role with youth and for the support you have given youth initiatives in the past. You represent an important piece of the puzzle. We are looking to build a permanent bridge of communication between the youth of the town and important community leaders.
Ideas for exciting events and creating invaluable community resources are ready to be unveiled at this first meeting! We also suggest that you, or a designee you select from your organization, come with an idea of how you think MYAC can help you. Other ideas about events in the community or ways to strengthen the community are also appreciated! While this is an introductory meeting, it will be beneficial to hear your ideas as well about how we can help you!
