The Drug Free Alton Coalition is joining forces with Alton High School and Marquette Catholic High School students for a community-wide event.
The event will provide participating youths an opportunity to have their voices heard by many local leaders. Seating is available for any community member to attend the event.
Over the last several weeks, the students have worked on addressing community-specific issues and devised reasons and solutions.
The inaugural Youth Speak Out event will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in the Alton High School Commons.
Email Melanie Nagel at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in attending or for information.
