Students Moderate Brooklyn Park Mayoral Debate
A group of high school students recently offered a new angle to local elections.
Pro USA of Brooklyn Park offers extracurricular activities for students through sports and other programs, including a Brooklyn Park Mayoral candidate debate on Thursday, Oct. 23, at Brooklyn Park City Hall.
Three co-hosts and other student organizers asked mayoral candidates Jeffrey Lunde and Joy Marsh Stephens questions targeted toward youth.
“Our desire is to ensure that every kid who comes through the program participates … in their city, and each kid is college-bound,” said Pro USA Executive Director Stephen Wreh-Wilson.
Wreh-Wilson said Pro USA has three programs: life skills, academics and athletics. In the life skills program, children are assigned to a life coach who serves as a mentor, teaching skills in personal finance, civic responsibility and family-planning skills. The academic program offers homework help, college preparation, media projects and scholarships. The athletics program has provided an athletic scholarship, and it is re-organizing to create recruitment opportunities in different athletic programs.
