(Washington, DC)- The DC Mayor’s Office on African Affairs (OAA) will hold Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s African Youth Town Hall on Saturday April 28, 2012, from 11am to 2pm at the Howard Middle School of Mathematics and Science.
The African Youth Town Hall will be the culmination of OAA’s youth program aimed at encouraging civic engagement, participation, and leadership development, and at connecting African youth in the District to one another. So far, OAA has convened three well-attended forums, an African Youth Leadership Roundtable in January, an African Youth Focus Group on March 9th and a smaller focus group at Columbia Heights Education Campus, which all encouraged experience sharing and discourse leading up to the Town Hall.
The Mayor’s African Youth Townhall is open to all that live and learn in the District: DCPS, charter school, private school and college students are all highly encouraged to attend. Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss your experiences and relay creative ideas and solutions on issues that affect African youth directly to the Mayor!
