Youth Council alumni home for the holidays

On Monday December 21st The Peachtree City Youth Council Alumni were “Home for Christmas” and home from College to attend the Inaugural “Peachtree City Youth Council Alumni Reunion.”

The Peachtree City Youth Council began in March of 2003 and has been a volunteer youth organization under the Peachtree City Parks and Recreation Department since then.

Current members were able to meet and hear from the Alumni about their college experience and also got to compete against them in Pop Culture Trivia. A majority of Alumni currently attend UGA, but other colleges represented included: Georgia Tech, GCSU, West Georgia and The University of Southern California (USC).

In 2010 the current membership is planning to visit Capitol Hill and the White House for the first time.

The youth council holds monthly meetings in which the community may discuss issues pertaining to youth. The council also holds a number runs youth-oriented events ranging from concerts to sports leagues, “teen nights” and community service projects.
