Local youth lobby Hawley and Ranzenhofer to restore budget for state's youth bureaus
On Tuesday, local youth from Genesee County met with Senator Ranzenhofer and Assemblyman Hawley to get support by investing money in the Youth Bureau System.
The youths asked for help in urging the $1.698 million to be restored for the 2018-2019 Youth Bureau Development Program. The Youth Development Program allows youth bureaus, along with many other community-based organizations to operate after-school prevention programs, which helps young people succeed.
The youths all shared their experiences being involved with the Youth Bureau System and how it has positively impacted their lives.
