Our mission is to advise the Township Committee regarding issues of concern to youth in the community. We work with the Township Committee, Township Department Heads, Schools, Civic Clubs and Service Organizations to provide service and leadership opportunities for the youth of the Township.
Students will take more of a leadership role this year. Student officers will be elected through nomination and vote.
Finish Part 2 of Need For A Teen Center. Last year the Youth Advisory made a presentation to the Hopewell Township Committee on the need for a teen center in Hopewell Valley. The Committee asked them to research it further as to location, cost, staffing and funding. This will be the priority this year resulting with a presentation to the Hopewell Township Committee in the Spring.
