Peggy Buckles and Mario Metzger, the Foundation’s co-chairs for the popular program, said students will tour and learn about different local facilities.
Topics include introduction to leadership, local government, the justice system, health services, recreation, education, fire protection, community services, and business.
"Without a significant time commitment, students get an up-close look at the inner workings of our community," Buckles said, "making this a fun way to widen their horizons."
At the culmination of the program, each student will be encouraged to participate in a community service project of his or her own choosing.
Meetings will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on the following Wednesdays: Nov. 13, Dec. 11, Jan. 8, Jan. 22, Feb. 12, Feb. 26, March 5, March 19, April 9, and May 7, and will be held at various nearby locations.
Applications are due to the Future Foundation by Oct. 25 and can be obtained from the student’s school office or online at www.clvff.org.
Information is also available from the CLVFF office at 818-880-1054. Students will be notified of their acceptance into the program by Nov. 5.
The program is sponsored by the Conejo/Las Virgenes Future Foundation.
