Youth Committee Events
Programs and Events
The Laguna Niguel Youth Committee has organized and participated in many special events and workshops for youth since its inception in May of 2000. Youth Committee members volunteer their time at Parks and Recreation events and other City events such as the Bunny Bonanza, Earth Day Celebration, Haunted Trails, Holiday Tree Lighting, Holiday Parade, Senior Games, and Niguel Botanical Preserve Annual Fundraiser.
The Youth Committee has been involved in creating, promoting, and participating in programs and events for youth such as the Annual Music and Arts Festival (a showcase for high school and middle school bands with donations benefiting a designated charity), the Annual High School Job and College Fair, and Teens for Turkeys (a food collection to benefit those in need with donations going to Second Harvest Food Bank or the City's adopted Marines unit). The committee also hosts instructional workshops for teens such as Salsa and Swing Dance workshops and Self Defense workshops.
The Youth Committee has worked to support the safety of the Laguna Niguel community by giving input to the Traffic Commission on ways to advertise to teens to prevent drinking and driving and planning programs intended to increase awareness and education among local high school students for drug and alcohol abuse prevention. The Committee supported the “Pizza with Police” program for high school students and has helped Police Services in mock disaster trainings held to train volunteers of the Citizens Academy.
