DeKalb County’s Office of Youth Services and V103 radio personality Greg Street are teaming up to host a Teen Summit on Youth Violence and Social Media.
The summit is set for Thursday, May 1, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts & Community Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive, Decatur.
“In light of recent events at Wade Walker Park, the summit will give our young people a voice at the table about teen violence—a local and national issue—that we must address here in our own community,” said DeKalb Interim CEO Lee May. “We must invest in our youth and provide the tools to help them identify and prevent this destructive behavior.”
The summit will promote awareness, identify resources, and engage the community to help foster a commitment to ending teen violence. DeKalb County high school students are invited to join DeKalb County officials, and special celebrity and community guests to share their thoughts and learn about youth violence. Students will also have the opportunity to speak with vendors about summer employment opportunities.
