Inaugural Teen Town Hall scheduled for Oct. 4

The Brighton Youth Commission is teaming up with the Brighton City Council to create an event specifically to hear from youth in the community on topics that matter to them. On Thursday, Oct. 4 the city will host its inaugural Teen Town Hall at the Armory Performing Art Center, 300 Strong Street. This event will run from 6-7:30 p.m. and will include roundtable discussions, an opportunity for youth attendees to ask City Council members questions while also sharing their thoughts, live polling, and a networking opportunity.


As a part of their mission, the Brighton Youth Commission focuses on building strong youth-adult partnerships, believing that each population has both expertise and experience that the other may not, and that the best results happen when everyone has a voice in policy making. This event aims to accomplish this on a larger scale in our community.

“This is such a unique opportunity for everyone involved,” City of Brighton Youth Services Manager Tawnya Russell said. “In speaking with youth commissions across the country, it is clear that not all young people have the opportunity to interact with policy makers this way. Likewise, many policy makers have not had the opportunity learn from and network with young people in their community.”


This event is open to youth in sixth grade and older. A light dinner will be provided.
