Despite the somewhat stilted pace of an official public meeting, the county’s Youth Advisory Board made strides toward filling the council’s role for them when they met Monday evening. The members grappled with the questions of how best to gather input from youth, as to what they like to do, what problems face their age group, and how the county and its police and justice components might help to better teens lives.All of the members of the newly commissioned board, which met for only the second time on Monday, are students at Los Alamos High School, but their focus group extends beyond the high school to include middle school and home-schooled students. The board will eventually have seven members, but only five young people have been approved so far.The two areas where the county currently provides programs directly targeted for youth are in recreation and in justice. The board is tasked with providing council with views from the youth perspective, and in order to gather that perspective, it is creating a survey.“Name the top five things you like to do,” was the jumping-off point proposed by the subcommittee formulating the recreation component of the survey.
