Crist Youth Expo Aims to Combat Car Thefts
The expo will highlight programs and activities that are available for Pinellas youths. It is free and open to the public.
ST. PETERSBURG – U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, will host a community youth program expo this Saturday (Feb. 3), to help further his efforts with community leaders, organizations, parents, and local youth to combat the dangerous trend of car thefts in Pinellas County.
The event will bring together local non-profits to share information on after school programs available for Pinellas youth. The event is free and open to the public, and will include activities for kids, teens, and parents. Crist will also sit down with non-profit and community leaders for a panel discussion on how to get young people more engaged.
“The takeaway from our meeting last summer was that kids are hungry for programs aimed at their interests. It was also clear we need to do a better job letting them know what’s currently available. With that in mind, our office will be hosting a local youth program expo this Saturday,” Crist said. “It will bring together nonprofits working with at-risk youth, so they can share information on what’s being offered to children, their parents, and community leaders. I’m hopeful it might also lead to some synergy and partnerships between the organizations participating.”
The Community Youth Program Expo is 10 a.m. to noon at Childs Park Recreation and Fitness Center, 4301 13th Ave. S, St. Petersburg.
Crist represents Florida’s 13th congressional district, which includes south and mid-Pinellas County.
