The Neshaminy Coalition for Youth (NC4Y), a community-based group devoted to promoting healthy lifestyles and positive choices for young people, has announced the debut of a new podcast series, “Giving Youth a Voice.” The plan is to have Neshaminy School District students host each episode, generate topics that are of interest to them and find community leaders and professionals that can answer their questions.
In the first episode, students from the Carl Sandburg MS SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Club interviewed School Resource Officer Missy Robison and asked her questions submitted by the student body. They were interested in how Officer Robison became a police officer, what is considered self-defense in Pennsylvania, how car chases are conducted and what are the limits, and what she considered a career highlight (spoiler alert: she described giving CPR to a vendor at Oxford Valley Mall which saved his life).
An additional episode will be posted in mid-March, and one episode per month after that. The podcast can be found at the website link below and on most major podcast apps and websites. The project is made possible by funding through the Bucks County Drug & Alcohol Commission, Inc.
