This past Friday, the Ohio Attorney’s Office announced that more than 300 students representing 52 Ohio counties have been named to the office’s Teen Ambassador Board for the upcoming school year.
The participants represent more than 160 schools throughout the state. Included among them are Jordan Haas, Darron Reinhart, and Mirah Haring from Lexington High School.“We created this board to give Ohio high school students an opportunity to learn about law and government and to hear their ideas,” Attorney General Mike DeWine said. “We look forward to working with this group of students.”
The mission of the Teen Ambassador Board is to provide Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at Ohio law and government. The board is open to high school juniors and seniors from public, private, home, charter, and online schools located in Ohio.
Board members advise the Attorney General’s Office on issues relating to teens, and they work with their peers to develop solutions. They also attend presentations, hear from elected officials, interact with assistant attorneys general, and have the opportunity to participate in events around the state.
During the 2018 Two Days in May Conference on Victim Assistance and the 2017 Law Enforcement Conference, board members presented workshops on popular apps that teens use to help attendees understand the apps, potential dangers, and available security measures.
This year’s Teen Ambassador Board kick-off meeting will be held in August.
