The sixth Teen Political Forum, brought to you by the City of Coral Springs, will be open to local high school students on Monday, April 2. This educational event will be held at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The purpose of this Forum is to have city and county elected officials enlighten students with their personal experiences as elected officials and address teen issues of interest, concluding with a Q & A from the student audience. This is a great opportunity for students to talk directly to their elected officials on topics that are significant to them.
The Teen Political Forum was spearheaded by Mayor Roy Gold, who realized “the importance of involving our future leaders in the political process while they are still in high school. As the director of this program, I have had the privilege to work with some of the best and brightest students to create a student driven event that bridges the gap between students and our elected officials," Mayor Gold said.
The event is open to all high school students who live in Coral Springs or who attend our local high schools: Coral Springs High, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Coral Glades High, Coral Springs Charter, J. P. Taravella High and Coral Springs Christian Academy. Students may receive service hours for attending the Forum. Students who are home-schooled or attend private schools and live in Coral Springs are also welcome.
For further information, please call 954-344-1005. The Coral Springs Center for the Arts is located at 2855 Coral Springs Drive.
