Diversity and Outreach Committee

Be a part of a youth group!

This is a significant time in many people’s lives. We have had many youth and families who want to get involved, and there has been interest in forming a community youth group as a way to offer actions for youth to take. Youth are always welcome to attend all events, but we are hoping to provide ways for them to get more involved in their communities and their future.

The idea is still in the planning stages, and we would love to have your voice as it comes together. Please share your thoughts and ideas.

If you are interested in getting involved, email melissa@brooklynpeace.org.
