Gun Violence Awareness Series for Teens

This July, be a part of a politically diverse group of high schoolers and participate in a gun violence discussion for two hours each week!

Hosted by the Westchester County Youth Councils (WCYC) of Family Services of Westchester (FSW), this three-week series will tackle and dive deep into the gun violence crisis. 8th-12th graders are welcome to participate!

FSW’s Westchester County Youth Councils are leadership programs that promote civic engagement among youth of all backgrounds in Westchester County.

Sessions 1 – 3: July 13th, July 20th, July 27th @ 5:30 – 7:30PM, White Plains Public Library

First session will be a breakdown informational session about gun violence. Second session will dive into discussions addressing gun violence and second amendment rights. Third session will be dedicated to developing a community service project to address gun violence. Throughout the three sessions, we will be developing the skills to listen and communicate with one another.

Dinner and snacks will be provided during each session. Complimentary gift cards for those attending all three sessions. Six community service hours available.
