Ptownlife.org serves teens and families with children of all ages, providing a bridge between the community and an array of activities, services and resources.
To meet Goal 6 of the Pleasanton Youth Master Plan, the Youth Master Plan Oversight Committee has developed this website for youth and families. We hope you’ll use this site to discover, contribute and connect with your Pleasanton community.
Youth Master Plan
In 2010, the Pleasanton’s Youth Master Plan Implementation Committee working with Pleasanton stakeholders completed an update of the 2001 Youth Master Plan. The Youth Master Plan was developed to respond to challenges facing youth and help guide the health, safety, and well-being of Pleasanton’s children and youth today and into the future.
The Youth Master Plan presents a long-term vision, goals and strategies for meeting the needs of children and youth in Pleasanton. The Plan, which was developed with substantial input from the public, provides guidance to elected officials, commission members, City and School District staff, community leaders, and youth serving organizations on how these needs can be met.
The City of Pleasanton Youth Commission guides the implementation of the Youth Master Plan. For more information on the Youth Commission, please contact Samu Tiumalu, Recreation Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (925) 931-3432.
Student News Team (Formally the Web Team)
A new component of the website is a weekly newsletter “The Ptown Life” – a weekly roundup of the news, events, and happenings in Pleasanton.
Along with City Staff, each week the Ptownlife News Team will work collaboratively to create a newsletter that is both interesting and informative to our community. Students will submit content in the form of local news stories and events, video, and photography. Students can also work on youth contests and social media and gain experience in editing, writing content, video production, events, and journalism. Students may apply to be either a contributor or an editor.
