A collaboration of many different organizations in Cole County are hosting its 2nd Annual Cole County Youth Day. The Jefferson City Police Department, Cole County Sheriff Department, Jefferson City Fire Department, Jefferson City Public Schools, Council for Drug Free Youth, Center for Change and Community Life, Evening Rotary, and many others have joined forces to give local youth a voice in our community.
Students in 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades and their parents are invited to participate in the event on Saturday, April 8th. There is no charge to participate. Students will have the opportunity to offer their own solutions to various community issues and interact with local community leaders. While the youth are participating in fun activities, parents will be able to visit with local community organizations and discover all the different programs and resources available for youth and family in our community. Refreshments will be provided for free to all participants.
