Anaheim Youth to Learn About Civic Engagement

Local community groups have planned a summit this week aimed at boosting civic engagement and participation among Anaheim youth.

The two-day training at Anaheim High School “seeks to educate youth with an introduction to civics and how the government works…and provide opportunities for youth to become civically engaged in Anaheim through experiential learning,” according to organizers with the Orange County Congregation Community Organization.

Scheduled speakers include Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, Anaheim Union High School District Superintendent Mike Matsuda, Los Amigos of Orange County President Jose Moreno, Orange County Congregation Community Organization or OCCCO Executive Director Miguel Hernandez and Ryan Ruelas, founder of the student leadership group BROS.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. More details are available by clicking here or contacting Cynthia Sanchez of OCCCO at
