We are looking for individuals who live in Concord and may wish to be involved for community service credit, teen organizations that may be interested as part of their mission or a special project, or other ways as well. Please contact Jennifer Clarke at Concord Carlisle Youth Services by May 17 at email@example.com or visit http://www.concordnet.org/1818/Comprehensive-Long-Range-Plan if interested.
