Autism, bullying, youth stress and bike safety will be topics at Mayor’s Forum on Children’s Well-being


Irvine community members are invited to attend the upcoming Mayor’s Forum on Children’s Well-being from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 12 at the Lakeview Senior Center.

Aligned with the City of Irvine’s Strategic Plan for Children, Youth and Families, the free event will feature a handful of breakout sessions led by experts in their respective fields. Topics are set to include autism, bullying prevention, youth stress and risky behavior prevention, and bicycle safety. You can check out the details here.

There will also be a number of informational booths staffed by local organizations that serve young people. Those resources will be available to the public starting at 5:30 p.m.

Again, admission is free, and child care will be provided for kids ages 4 and older. Speaking of which, one of the child care activities is a free hockey clinic hosted by former Anaheim Ducks defenseman Jason Marshall and the Anaheim Ducks Street Team.
