AV Youth Matters!

AV Youth Matters hosted a Town Hall Forum for candidates running for Palmdale City Council. Youth developed the questions, asked them of candidates and held a mock election to pick their winners.

As part of its prevention efforts, Pueblo y Salud routinely convenes meetings of its youth prevention council, temporarily named AV Youth Matters.


AV Youth Matters is a civic engagement and empowerment vehicle that allows high school aged youth throughout the Antelope Valley to express themselves and receive information regarding issues of alcohol and drug prevention, but also introduces life skills and consciousness raising activities to the Antelope Valley’s future leaders.
