GREENSBORO, N.C. — City officials say they’ll host a series of forums this month in an effort to learn how the city can “best serve” area teenagers.

The forums, which are purposed as opportunities for teens to express their opinions and ideas on city programs and services, will be hosted by the city’s human relations department.

City Human Relations Director Love Crossling says the forums will serve as “a sounding board as the city works to provide engaging, entertaining and educational programs for teenagers.”

“This is an opportunity to learn directly from the young people of our community,” Crossling said. “We want to use these opportunities to listen to them and better understand their needs. Ultimately, we’re interested in what moves them, what inspires them, and how the City can connect with them in a positive way.”

The dates and locations of the forums, which are each set to run from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., are as follows:

  • Sept. 10 — Claremont Courts at 2702 Patio Place
  • Sept. 16 — Caldcleugh Multicultural Center at 1700 Orchard St.
