As much as one may hear that young people are the future, you don’t often see many people give youth the platform they need to prove that. Thankfully, the District 5 Youth Advisory Council is holding a Youth Town Hall for Sacramento youth to provide just that.

The 2018 Youth Town Hall will take place on Wednesday, August 8th at 6 PM at Hollywood Park Elementary School, 4915 Harte Way in Sacramento. The Town Hall will be open to youth between the ages of 13 to 18 to share their ideas to improve the community in the future in front of Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Councilmember Jay Schenirer, and many other local policymakers.

“What I took out of this event is that the youth is ready,” said Tyrell Bell, a Sacramento resident who attended last years Youth Town Hall. “I’ve always assumed that, I’ve always assumed that the youth is ready for change. It doesn’t matter which generation you look at, all of us want to see change.”

At last years first ever Youth Town Hall, over 65 Sacramento young people came out to share their ideas and concerns. Mayor Steinberg is on the record as saying that one of his top three priorities while in office is youth. The 2018 Youth Town Hall will hopefully bring more Sacramento youth to speak to Mayor Steinberg himself. It aims to provide the youth a platform to show that they have the minds to help improve the city of Sacramento for everyone.
