CHAPEL HILL – Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt and the Town of Chapel Hill kicks off the new youth initiative “Chapel Hill 4 Youth” by inviting teens and tweens to a series of interactive events and forums.

The first forum takes place on October 24 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Street Scene Teen Center.  The purpose of the youth initiative is to investigate how to better meet the needs of the town’s youth.  A town release says, in a college town environment dominated by a major university, the youth who grow up in Chapel Hill are sometimes overlooked.

Community outreach efforts include four public meetings each with a different audience.
