Tonight (Thursday, December 10, beginning at 6:00 pm, the City of Plainfield will host another "Listening Session" for the Youth Summit on Education and Employment at the Plainfield Public Library. If the young people you know have not attended one of these listening sessions, I strongly urge you to bring them--and to come yourself--to be a part of the planning for this event, scheduled for early in the New Year. Many folks repeat the old platitude, "the youth are our future," but then don't bring them to events such as these.
The GrassROOTS Community Foundation, a public health and social action organization, will be facilitating the discussion and the summit. It is imperative that young people be a part of the planning in order for this summit on education and employment to be successful for THEM. I hope that you will attend!
