Livingston Youth and Community Services (LYCS) News

by: Robert Allen Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Livingston Youth and Community Services (LYCS) is proud to announce that Peer to Peer’s inaugural podcast is now available on-line at our website: The podcast is an audio interview with Officer Gary Mankowitz (D.A.R.E. and Livingston Community Policing). The topic is one that is relevant in this age of technology, Cyber-bullying. The interview was followed closely by the successful parent performance by the George Street Playhouse, In Real Life, which was presented at Heritage Middle School on December 2, 2009.  LYCS is planning additional workshops in 2010 which will provide tangible solutions to the problems created by Cyber-bullying. In addition to the workshop, Peer to Peer students will be hosting another podcast interview with a panel of community leaders to further discuss these issues. If you are interested in participating in the panel discuss, please call Susan Ridley, Director, LYCS 973-535-2646 for further details.

As part of community programming, LYCS is co-sponsoring the Livingston Chinese Community’s Chinese New Year 2010 celebrations on February 6, 2010 at Livingston High School (4:00-9:30 pm).
