[ARCHIVED] Local Teens Invited to Upcoming Focus Groups to Establish an East Lansing Youth Commission

Calling all teens! Join us for our East Lansing Youth Commission Focus Groups.

EAST LANSING, Mich. — East Lansing Mayor Ron Bacon is inviting local teens to be an integral part of forming a new youth commission for the City of East Lansing by participating in one or more of three upcoming focus groups.

The focus groups will take place on the following dates/times and at the locations indicated:

  • Monday, April 10 at 3 p.m. at the East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbot Road
  • Monday, April 17 at 6 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road
  • Saturday, April 22 at 11 a.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road

Teens who live in East Lansing or attend East Lansing Public Schools, ages 14-18, interested in helping to create the framework for this new commission are encouraged to attend one or more of the meetings. Pizza will be served.

“We want to hear from our area youth on how they would like this new commission to be structured,” said East Lansing Mayor Ron Bacon. “Our hope is to be able to create a commission, similar to our University Student Commission, that provides an opportunity for teens in our community to be able to express their viewpoints on the prevailing issues that impact them, while also engaging them around public service.”

Once the commission is formed, there will be an application process open to teens who live in East Lansing or attend East Lansing Public Schools, ages 14-18, and East Lansing City Council will seek to appoint the commission’s members and establish a monthly meeting schedule.
