Teen Political Forum

What is Teen Political Forum?

Students from each of our Coconut Creek high schools work together to design and moderate a public event to be held next April in Coconut Creek. Building upon their academic achievements, students will be further developing their leadership, collaboration, public speaking, writing, marketing, and time management skills through their involvement in this program. They will earn community service hours while being provided an invaluable introduction to their state and local government officials.

The Coconut Creek Teen Political Forum is tomorrow at 6:00 pm. This is a virtual event organized by staff and students from four of the City's highschools, and you are welcome to join as an attendee to listen.  The students have built a very robust program with speakers including:

  • Congressman Ted Deutch
  • Representative Christine Hunschofsky
  • School Board Member Nora Rupert
  • Commissioner Sandra Welch
  • Police Chief Butch Arenal
  • BCPS Director of Equity and Diversity David Watkins
  • Senior Planner Linda Whitman
