The Youth Leadership Council provides Weston students with a safe environment to discuss the challenges they face in high school. And to learn about the risks associated with substance abuse. In addition, YLC members may mentor younger students, become peer leaders, and help with ADAP’s awareness programs in the Weston schools and in the community.
YLC is comprised of 25-40 Weston students in 9 – 12th grades. Tim Walsh is the director and facilitator for the Youth Leadership Council. He was hand picked by John McGeehan who designed the program and has facilitated YLC since its inception. The group meets monthly-October through May-on the first Monday of the month from 7–9 PM in the Community Room at the Weston Public Library. Since we meet only once a month it is important that members attend each meeting.
There will be a parents’ meeting on November 2. Tim Walsh will present the program and expectations. Even parents who attended this meeting last year are asked to attend this year. The meeting will be in the Community Room of the Library at 6pm (right before the YLC meeting).
Space in the YLC program is limited and acceptance is on a first come basis.
To become a YLC member, please download and submit the application plus a $75 membership fee (check made out to ADAP of Weston). Further details in the application and invitation letter below.
