WHAT: 2017 KIDS VOTING
YOUTH CANDIDATE GUIDE SESSION
WHEN: SATURDAY, SEPT. 16 FROM 9 AM-NOON
WHERE: DURHAM CouNTY COOPERATIVE EXTENSION
721 Foster Street
This Saturday, September 16 all Durham middle and high school students are invited to join Kids Voting Durham and Durham School of the Arts’ Octagon Service Club to create a Candidate Questionnaire for Durham’s City Council and Mayor Candidates. Youth have the opportunity to voice their opinions about which issues are most important to them and say what they want to know about the candidates and their positions. The KVD Youth Candidate Guide is sent to all schools and is used by many adults to inform their vote. Breakfast snacks are provided. No preparation is necessary and all are welcome, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-560-7321 if you have questions or want to express interest.
This is a great volunteer activity for youth and a good college resume builder for students looking to dive into the issues most important to youth in the Durham community.
Want to weigh in but can’t make it Saturday? K-12 students can take Kids Voting 5 minute youth survey on Durham at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DurhamStudentVoice .
