County Executive’s Youth Advisory Committee To Hold Teen Forum

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett and his Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) invites teens to a Teen Forum scheduled for Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Building, One Veteran’s Place, Silver Spring.  The free event is being organized by members of the YAC to give young people an opportunity to share their experiences, insights and solutions to problems with the County Executive and members of the County Council.

The YAC provides Montgomery County teens the opportunity to develop leadership skills while serving their communities.  Appointed by the County Executive, YAC members represent youth from across the County.  The committee works to strengthen students’ voices in the schools through “speak outs” and contact with County government.  Another part of the committee’s mission is to help eliminate violence, alcohol and other drug use, and help fight racial discrimination through multicultural education.

Space is limited so pre-registration is recommended.  To pre-register, go to, click on registration and register for course number 310044.
