On Friday students across Bucks County will have an opportunity to voice concerns about how COVID-19 has impacted their education in a Teen Town Hall hosted by Zoom and sponsored by Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY).
Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA -1) and other Bucks County law makers will be on hand for teens to give voice to their concerns about the educational challenges they are facing during the coronavirus pandemic.
At a time when decisions are being made that will have a tremendous impact on their immediate and long-term future, Bucks County’s students deserve to have a seat at the table. PCCY is thankful to Congressman Fitzpatrick and the multiple elected officials and superintendents who have committed to joining us, so students can utilize this platform to have a voice in the matter, said, Bucks County Coordinator for PCCY, Dan O’ Brien.
O’Brien has been reaching out to parents, school officials, community groups, and elected officials tp help spread the word about the unique opportunity for Bucks County teens to speak out.
The question and answer portion of the Town Hall is open to any student resident of the county, he said.
The virtual event takes place Friday (tomorrow) beginning at 10:30 a.m. with students strongly encouraged to attend.
According to the PCCY website, the organization seeks to combine comprehensive research and the tools of advocacy to mobilize partner organizations and citizens across the region to change the lives of children for the better.
