Weber Communities That Care is proud to announce its newly formed Youth Council, a youth-led group advocating for the prevention of substance use and suicide in their communities. The 14 youth members are students at three local Junior Highs and Weber High School and were chosen through an application process for their diverse set of qualities. While participating in the council, the youth members will be mentored by local community leaders, develop leadership skills, engage in the civic process, and practice prosocial skills. The Youth will serve as a voice for their peers and provide council to the coalition in their strategic prevention efforts.
Watch for the Youth Council as they provide outreach in our communities. Some of their upcoming events include the following:
Night Out Against Crime, hosted by North Ogden Police Department
Tuesday August 3rd, 6-8 p.m. at North Ogden Park
Community Picnic, hosted by Weber CTC
9th, 6-8 p.m. at Snowcrest Jr. High
