SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING HIGHLIGHTS YOUTH INTERVENTION SUCCESSES IN CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST SEATTLE
What Did You Do on Your Summer Vacation? includes school district presentation on Southeast Schools Initiative

SEATTLE Councilmember Sally J. Clark hosts a special meeting of the Councils Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods Committee, What Did You Do on Your Summer Vacation? Wed., Sept. 24, 6 p.m.-8 p.m., at the Rainier Beach High School Performing Arts Auditorium to highlight current summer and after-school programs run by the City of Seattle that keep youth engaged, safe, off the streets and in school.

This has been a tragic year for too many young people and their families in Seattle, Clark said. The loss of life reminds us to redouble our efforts to help youth make life-affirming choices. The City worked with a number of great community partners over the summer and into this fall on programs to providing those options. We want to hear from the youth themselves about what works.

In addition, the Seattle School District will present the Southeast Schools Initiative designed to improve academic achievement in the classroom. Councilmember Clark said, Student success, both in and after school, is intrinsically linked to making neighborhoods vibrant, safe and great places to be.

Who: Councilmembers Sally J. Clark, Tim Burgess, and Tom Rasmussen; Young people who have participated in programs run by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, the Department of Parks & Recreation, and the Department of Human Services; representatives from the Seattle School District
Where: Rainier Beach High School Auditorium, 8815 Seward Park Avenue South
When: Wed., Sept. 24, 6 p.m.8 p.m.
