Four Hundred Riverside County Students To Explore Problems, Look For Solutions At Thursday's Youth Summit
CATHEDRAL CITY – Supervisor John J. Benoit will present opening remarks at the Tenth Annual Youth Summit to be held Thursday, March 11 from 9:00 AM-3:30 PM at Cathedral City’s Doral Desert Princess Resort (67-967 Vista Chino). Four hundred students from across Riverside County will participate in activities encouraging participants to live healthy and happy lifestyles, make good life choices, and prepare for success. They will also learn about peer pressure, prescription drug abuse, internet safety, depression, and suicide.
"The Youth Summit provides valuable training so that participants can go back to their schools and influence the lives of their peers," said Fourth District Supervisor John J. Benoit. "It's exciting to see our future leaders get involved, and I'm glad my district was selected to host this signature youth leadership event."
The Youth Summit’s mission is to recognize the importance of uniting and integrating young people into solution, planning and decision-making processes in the community.
Although the event is not open to the public, media representatives are welcome to attend and report on the perspectives of young people in the community. For more information, please contact Noel Loughrin, Youth Advisory Council Coordinator, at (760) 863-8211.
