The Lynn Community Association will host a program and round table forum on youth in Lynn on March 15, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Congregation Ahabat Sholom, 151 Ocean Street, Lynn.
Presenters will include Antonio Gutierrez of LYSOA (Lynn Youth Street Outreach Advocacy), Girls Inc., and Harry Schnur of KAYA. Presentations will include information on programs that each of these organizations offer to engage Lynn youth in positive experiences, as well as discussion on the process of guiding teens and young adults toward productive and healthy lifestyles.
“We hear so many stories about our youth getting into trouble. We simply have to make a greater effort to put our youth more in the way of productive activities, which will benefit everyone, “ says Mary Trahan, President of the Association. “No one wants their child to have problems in society, and parents sometimes need a helping hand, regardless of their socioeconomic status or culture; everyone wants to feel valued and recognized in his/her community.”
The program is open to all Lynn residents without charge. The mission of the Lynn Community Association is to promote pride and ownership in the Lynn community through beautification, education, recreation, and neighborly relationships.
Membership in the association is open to all without charge. For additional information, visit us on Facebook, our website at www.lynncommunity.org, email email@example.com, or call 781-346-9060.
