Giving youth a voice

-A A +A
By The Staff

Annie Chroninger, Josh Dolin, and Emi Weeks are three high school students working as part of a new program called “Youth Mobilizers.”

The YMCA employs the Youth Mobilizers four afternoons a week to research issues affecting local youth.

The Family YMCA, in partnership with the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, started the Youth Mobilizer program last school year.  

The Youth Mobilizers identify the issues they feel are important to investigate – such as learning more about why students are dropping out of our high school, or how and where teens from Los Alamos spend their money.  

The Youth Mobilizer program is modeled after similar programs in other states.  Annie, a senior at Los Alamos High School, began working for the YMCA as a Youth Mobilizer last school year.  

She says that last year the Mobilizers began to gather data about the issue of school drop-outs, and this year’s Mobilizers hope to get more solid information and make a presentation to the School Board.

The Mobilizers are also collecting information from middle and high school students about teen spending power.  

They have developed a survey that is being distributed at the schools, and they hope to present results at a Chamber of Commerce meeting before the end of the year.
