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 in April. 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.
