Youth get wild with adventure

-A A +A

Program > JJAB and YMCA sponsors yearly event

By Bernadette Lauritzen

Things are about to get wild in Los Alamos and the responsibility lies with the Los Alamos Youth Leadership program.
The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and the YMCA sponsored program will unite elementary aged students for their annual LAYL Wild Day set for Saturday.
The 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. event is a fundraiser for the youth leaders, who plan, purchase and coordinate the day from start to finish.
Elementary students will be receiving registration forms in Kindergarten through sixth grade and those in the home school community are welcome to visit the JJAB web site to learn more.
Co-coordinator and LAHS senior, Janali Gustafson has fellow team members preparing arts and crafts for kindergarten through third grade students and games for those in the upper grades for the morning portion of the day.
The afternoon session has the students switching roles. “The older kids will also be able to pop balloons filled with paint during their arts and crafts time,” Gustafson said. “We will also have the Los Alamos County Police and Fire Departments come, as well as the LANL Bomb Squad.”
The teens take every consideration to heart, planning lunch and snacks for the kids and providing service with a smile. The event was the brain child of LAHS alumni, Keanna Cohen and has evolved each year.
