WHAT IS THE YOUTH COMMITTEE
The Beckwith Township Youth Committee is a group of young children and teens with a common goal of bettering the Community by raising money to be distributed to others and put on Community events with an emphasis on FUN. By doing this the children gain leadership, parliamentary procedure skills and self-confidence. The Youth Committee holds monthly dances, a March Melt Down Winter Carnival, helps out with the Halloween Party, the Beckwith Heritage Days, buys gifts for the Angel tree children, Tree Planting and Courses for Youth such as Babysitters Course, Home Alone Coures, Cooking Course along with many more activities for the children in the community.
