The inaugural meeting of the Region 1 Youth Advisory Board will be held Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. at the Sharon Community Center on Hilltop Road.

Students in grades 7-12 are invited to participate.

Pizza, refreshments and beverages will be served.

The board is a goal of a recent initiative by the Housatonic Youth Service Bureau and its Northwest Corner Prevention Network and a response to a recent survey of middle and high school students to measure their developmental assets.
