Goffstown Youth Take the Lead

We are always so grateful for the amazing opportunities we can offer students through our GHS and MVMS Youth Forums and this month is no exception. Over the weekend of May 5-7, 10 Goffstown students in grades 8 through 11 were able to participate in an intense CADCA Youth Leadership Training offered  in partnership with DEA360, Makin’ It Happen and WMUR. From that training, 5 GHS students and Guidance Counselor John Webb were chosen to be part of the youth-led Town Hall Meeting addressing the opiate epidemic that was then televised on WMUR. To say that our kids were impressive is an understatement. They were poised, articulate, thoughtful – just fabulous and we couldn’t be prouder!
