- If you think there is nothing for youth and teens to do in Columbia, then here is your opportunity to get involved and be a part of the solution.
- Columbia Association is seeking members for its Teen Advisory Committee and Middle School Advisory Committee, which help plan, organize and implement positive programs and activities. All middle and high school students who live in Howard County are welcome.
- Students can develop leadership skills, meet like-minded peers from across the county and earn community service hours. Meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of every month, 5:30-6:30pm at the Youth and Teen Center at The Barn, 5853 Robert Oliver Place in the Oakland Mills Village Center.
- Those interested in applying are asked to call 410-992-3726, email CATeens@ColumbiaAssociation.org or visit the Youth and Teen Center.
