Youth summit to Greencastle

Saturday, February 19, 2011

GREENCASTLE -- The Greencastle Youth Engagement Summit (YES) is a community development initiative that will focus on Greencastle's youth demographic--ages 16 to 21 -- and identify their needs as both consumers and citizens.

Generously supported by a grant from the Indiana Leadership Association, Greencastle YES will also create an avenue for continued engagement in City government.

Greencastle YES will culminate in a one-day interactive session with students from Greencastle high school, DePauw University and Ivy Tech Community College. Students will have the opportunity to network and dialogue with their peers on topics including economic development, public safety, and visioning for the City of Greencastle.

The event will take place on Feb. 27 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Greencastle City Hall. Participants will be provided with lunch and refreshments. Contact City Planner Shannon Norman at 653-7719 or snorman@cityogreencastle.com for more information.

Great Idea but it looks like once again the ball is being dropped - the YOUTH that use the facilities in GREENCASTLE also included students that attend North & South Putnam High Schools - they spend money there too - let's try and unite the youth not continue to divide them by excluding their opinions amoung their peers
