Volunteers sought for youth violence prevention program

The Department of Community Connections seeks volunteers to serve on the Allocation Advisory Committee for Prevention Programs, an advisory body to Pierce County government on the use of tax dollars set aside for youth violence prevention programs.

The Committee is recruiting volunteers who live in the unincorporated areas of Pierce County with an interest in helping to prevent, reduce and/or eliminate violence among youth and families.

In its monthly meetings (typically January through June), members work to increase understanding of the impact of violence prevention programs, evaluate funding applications, and recommend allocations of the criminal justice sales and use tax that is imposed on unincorporated areas within Pierce County. The committee usually meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. During the month of April, the committee meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m. to hear presentations from applicants applying for violence prevention funding.

If you would like an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and youth in Pierce County, you may obtain more program information, as well as a board application here, or by contacting Stephanie Bray, Community Development supervisor, at (253) 798-6917 or [email protected]
