‘Safeguarding Our Youth’ forum will be held at West Hartford Town Hall.
Submitted by Nancy Hunt, The Bridge Family Center
The Bridge Family Center and the Hartford Juvenile Court District Local Interagency Services Team (LIST) are hosting Safeguarding Our Youth, a forum to be held at West Hartford Town Hall on Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015, from 5:30-7:45 p.m., to hear from West Hartford youth and families about ways the community can keep youth on positive paths.
The ultimate goal is to empower youth to make healthy and appropriate choices, however, kids are less experienced and emotionally immature and will occasionally make mistakes. When mistakes occur, it is important that systems provide the interventions and guidance shown to be most effective for youth, families, and the community.
This free community event includes dinner, speakers, discussions, and a question-and-answer session. The forum will be held in the West Hartford Town Hall, Room 400, located at 50 South Main St., West Hartford, CT.
