On Wednesday night at the Phoenixville Senior Center, Communities that Care is hosting a town hall meeting to discuss the results of a recent report on the substance abuse habits and mental well-being of Chester County and Pennsylvania youth.
While the results of the 2011 Pennsylvania Youth Survey Report—a biennial survey that 12 school districts in Chester County and 14,600 students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12 participated in—were outlined at only the county level, at Wednesday's meeting the group will discuss the specific responses Phoenixville Area School District students provided.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. while the meeting itself will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
According to Communities that Care's Dolores Winston, representatives from Phoenixville Hospital, Phoenixville Area School District, Phoenixville Area Positive Alternatives, Activate Phoenixville, Communities That Care, Phoenixville Recreation Department, and the YMCA will be on hand to discuss the survey results and chart a path forward for Phoenixville youth.
While Communities that Care initially asked that prospective attendees RSVP, Winston said on Tuesday that anyone interested in attending is encouraged to show up unannounced.
