Greensboro, N.C. -- Teenagers and their parents are invited to take part in a Teen Forum in Greensboro. It's part of a series of on-going meetings by the National Conference for Community and Justice or NCCJ and the City of Greensboro.

Teenagers are meeting to discuss the types of events they want to be a part of in downtown Greensboro. Not only that they're learning how to approach and handle problems among their own group of peers.

Susan Feit, Executive Director of NCCJ says the meeting will be led by After-ANYTOWN Youth Ambassadors. WFMY News 2's own Sandra Hughes will also speak at the event Tuesday night.

WFMY News 2 reached out to the City of Greensboro and they tell us the teenagers at the meeting say they want more types of activities and programs that are appealing to them. That includes activities dealing with the arts, athletics, and even business. They City of Greensboro is in the process of reviewing the feedback in an effort to develop a plan to help meet the needs of youth.

The meeting will take place Tuesday, October 15 from 6:30 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. at the Greensboro Central Library on 219 North Church Street in Greensboro. You can find out more by contacting (336)272-0359.
