2010-11 Youth Congress Leadership Program Begins

The 2010-11 Youth Congress Leadership Program began on November 26, 2010 with over 70 students enrolled from area schools. The program began with the Chief Adult Advisor for the group, Pat Grant, leading the students through a brief orientation. That was followed by a series of group activities led by Cliff Moore from Oak Park High School, which was focused on getting students to meet one another.

Students participating are in grades 9-12 and attend various schools in the community including Agoura High , Calabasas High, La Reina High, Newbury Park High, Oak Park High, Thousand Oaks High, and Westlake High Schools.

The objective of the Youth Congress Leadership Program is to help students learn more about their communities and encourage them to become active members of their cities so that they can provide input to those agencies that affect their lives.

The 2010-11 program includes a Forum by Kiwanis, Rotary and Soroptimist members; visitations to: Kavli Theater at the Civic Arts Plaza, East Valley Sheriff’s Station, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, Community Conscience, Greater Conejo Chamber of Commerce, Las Virgenes Unified School District, Thousand Oaks Hospital and a Wrap-up and Kiwanis Dinner.
