Teen Task Force to be formed

The Jamestown Teen Center, the Jamestown Substance Abuse Prevention Task Force and the Student Assistance Program at Lawn Avenue School are starting a Teen Task Force, which will meet on Wednesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Teen Center. Anyone interested in helping others and wanting to make a difference is encouraged to attend.

The task force will focus on different causes each month, including ending civil war in Uganda, healthy eating, dodging the holiday blues, winter sports safety, domestic violence awareness, black history month, marijuana awareness, Internet safety and summer safety.

The task force will plan events and activities throughout the year; community service hours can be awarded.
