The Youth Advisory Commission is looking for what it can do to connect and spread awareness of youth programs in the Killeen area.
On Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., the Killeen Community Center will host a Killeen Citywide Youth Round Table for local youth oriented organization to showcase available resources and ways to collaborate on any upcoming projects that help positively impact the local youth.
“We’re trying to connect local organizations that offer youth programs to learn what is and isn’t working in our community,” said Levallois Hamilton, recreation manager for the Killeen Community Center. “We hope to develop partnerships that strengthen our individual and collective efforts and the opportunities we can offer youth.”
Topics of discussion will range from family friendly after school programs during the school year as well as activities over the holidays.
The Youth Advisory Commission Killeen serves as a liaison to the Killeen City Council and exists to assist in minimizing community problems relating to youth. The organization also encourages positive development through service projects in their local communities
