Allocation Advisory Committee for Prevention Programs volunteers sought

Friday Sep 21 2012 10:29 AM

The Pierce County Department of Community Connections is seeking new members to serve on the Allocation Advisory Committee for Prevention Programs, an advisory body to Pierce County government on the use of tax dollars set aside for youth violence prevention programs. The Committee is seeking volunteers who live in unincorporated areas of Pierce County to help provide programs for the prevention of violence in, among and to children and youth.

In its monthly meetings (months of January through June), members work to increase understanding of the impact of violence prevention programs, evaluate funding applications, and recommend allocations of the criminal justice sales and use tax that is imposed on unincorporated areas within the County.

If you would like an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and youth in Pierce County, you may obtain more program information, as well as a board application on the Pierce County website at, or by contacting Renee Tinder at (253) 798-4529 or ?
