Health and Human Services Dept. of Newton City Hall
Newton's Teen Voice, a great opportunity for young people to get involved in the city! We are having a general interest meeting for new members on Wednesday, October 16th at 6pm in Health and Human Services Dept in City Hall. (Free pizza will be served!) We are currently working on projects as a part of a grant focused on Mental Health and Well-Being and specifically Youth Stress in Newton. We have many other interesting projects going on as well. Visit www.newtonma.gov/youth for more information!
Here is a description written by a Newton high school student: Newton's Teen Voice (NTV) is a shorter name for the Mayor's Public Service Internship Program. We meet weekly to discuss the issues and challenges facing teens in Newton, to plan events, and to advise Newton's official Youth Commission and the Mayor directly about the most important teen issues in Newton and how they could be solved. It's not a huge time commitment, but a bit of time can make a huge difference. Most importantly, at NTV you will find an incredibly kind, dedicated group of students (and two awesome advisors!) who always keep things relaxed. If you think public service is boring, we'll prove you wrong. Our group meets right down Walnut St. at Newton City Hall in the Health and Human Services Department. To get there, just go in through City Hall's main entrance across from the library, walk straight through the lobby and down a long hallway, and turn right when you reach the very end. Come by next Wednesday and learn more about our work. There is absolutely no obligation to join, and just because you can't make it every week doesn't mean you can't get involved! Experiencing the inner workings of Newton as a city over the past few years has taught me so much...I'd recommend getting involved with NTV to absolutely anyone. We hope to see you on the 16th! Best, Jacob
