Children's Needs Task Force Annual American Youth Character Awards

The Huntington Beach Children's Needs Task Force, together with the City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department, is sponsoring the American Youth Character Awards program to honor young people who are the real and proper role models for their generation. The American Youth Character Awards program endeavors to join with schools and youth service organizations throughout Huntington Beach in strengthening our moral community by celebrating and awarding character in our youth!

Children's Needs Task Force

The Children's Needs Task Force (CNTF) believes that the future of our city depends on how we view our children. The community must provide an environment where children can grow up and become healthy mature adults who feel themselves to be a part of the community. Local leaders must work with schools, outside agencies, the police, and the young people of our community to effectively identify the needs of children, and to develop an approach with which to meet these needs. The Task Force is available to provide their recommendations to the City Council concerning appropriate methods to meet the needs of children in Huntington Beach.

The CNTF meets the fourth Thursday every other month at 4:00 pm in Room B-8, Lower-Level.
