Want to lend a helping hand? The Burlington Youth Council (BYC) is offering several opportunities this month to assist your local community.

Teens interested in participating should make plans to attend their meeting from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at Thataways Youth Center, 1334 Overbrook Road, Burlington.

There will be opportunities to sign up for fundraisers. Some of their events for this month require “volunteers to help serve concessions, clean, etc.” and they include:
