Youth Commission Prepares for Annual Legislative Tour


Members of the Chatham County Youth Commission (CCYC) are getting ready for their annual Legislative Tour.

Youth Commissioners will depart from Savannah shortly before midnight March 2 for a whirlwind trek up the east coast to Washington, DC; Philadelphia;  and New York City.

The trip begins in our nation's capital where students will visit he NEWSEUM, Arlington National Cemetery and the Smithsonian Institute. On Monday, March 3, CCYC will participate in the National Association of Counties' Annual Legislative Conference for the 18th consecutive year. CCYC is the only youth group in the country to attend this conference. They will participate in a forum with County Commissioners from across the country about youth HIV/AIDS awareness issues before continuing their tour in Philadelphia, PA and New York City. Commissioners will return to Washington Wednesday, March 6, for a tour of the Capitol where they will meet with Congressman Jack Kingston before returning to Savannah.
