What the Southwest Advisory Council is up to

Your West Seattle city-run community centers all have Advisory Councils – and one of those groups wanted to share the news of what they’re up to. We were forwarded the above photo of members of the Southwest Community Center Advisory Council and a summary of their monthly meeting last Thursday:

Guest speakers were Royal Alley-Barnes and Sue Goodwin from the City of Seattle, who described a new program. Seattle Youth Violence Initiative (“Power of Place”) coming to Southwest C.C. soon. The late Friday and Saturday program is planned for teens on the “edge “. It targets good kids who are starting to face the challenges associated with adult decisions. The teens will be offered on site community resource support for counseling and educational guidance. Focus will be placed on making choices that will prepare teens for success in life.

Join Us! Citizen direction and participation is essential to our success. Monthly meetings are held to talk about programs, policies, and financial issues. Our advisory councils always are looking for new members. If you would like to get involved, please contact the facility staff for further information. The next meeting of the SWCC Advisory Council is scheduled for 7 pm Oct. 15th at the Community Center and is open to the public.

Read more about the SWCC Advisory Council here. For the other centers: Alki’s advisory-council info is here; Delridge, here; Hiawatha, here; High Point does not have a standalone council listed.

    Thanks. They were not linked on the Parks Department pages I used for reference – please add any weblinks you have – we rely on those to point people to information!
    (specifically, I couldn’t find an advisory council link on Camp Long page:
    or on HPCC page – there’s a line but it’s not linked – all the other community centers have advisory council pages, as linked above

Sorry, comment time is over.
