Community Conversation about teen life


Tuesday, April 02, 2019 3:39PM

What’s it like to be a teenager in New Hampshire, specifically in an area where the average age is 55, and where most activities are geared toward adults? Lately, our region has put a lot of focus on attracting new young families, but what have we done to meet the needs of teenagers and young adults who already live here? Have we considered their needs as we think about the future? A recent letter to the editor lamented the lack of cultural and social opportunities for teens and the absence of options for young adults who need safe places to gather socially.

The next Community Conversation, hosted by the Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript at Bass Hall on Wednesday at 7 p.m., will take on these issues.

This conversation is a first step, an opportunity to hear from our youth and begin to work together to create solutions that can make our community more inclusive and welcoming for our youth, and ultimately more vibrant for all of us.

Conversation “Sparkers” for the evening are Daisy Young, Henry Bernstein and Anna McGuiness with Karen Hatcher as Moderator.

Community Conversations are free and all are welcome.
