Minority Leader George Oros (R/Cortlandt) had the pleasure to receive a first-hand look at some of the worthwhile programs and activities youngsters are engaged in through the Peekskill Municipal Youth Bureau, led by Executive Director Valerie Swan. Nearly 300 youth in Peekskill, between the ages of 11 and 18, participate in summer and after-school programs, which is made possible through funding as part of the county’s Urban Youth Initiative “Invest-in-Kids,” which Legislator Oros strongly supports.

During his recent visit, Legislator Oros encouraged youngsters to get involved in their community and strive to be leaders of the future.
