Vallejo parents can get a refresher on issues concerning their children next month at the annual Youth Expo and Parent Summit.
This is the fifth year that local grassroots organization Vallejo Together has put on the free conference, which had initially been divided into separate youth and parent events.
The purpose of the Youth Expo and Parent Summit is to give space to PARENTS to explore and discuss issues affecting the city’s young people, organizer Maria Guevara said, using the summit’s acronym for “parents, advocates, relatives, educators, neighbors, teachers and supporters.
“”It’s also a day to offer youth free activities, like horse rides, haircuts and one-on-one training with martial artists, that they would normally not be exposed to,” Guevara said.
