Youth Council Groups

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

The Neighborhood Youth Council groups will be focused on neighborhood change.   There has been a lot of interest with youth in creating more opportunities for green space, jobs and extracurricular activities. We are proud to announce that our Sarah Lawrence College Research Assistants have won a scholarship to attend the DoSomething.org Boot Camp in NYC July 20th, 2013. Our SLC RAs were chosen because they were identified as individuals who have a solid well thought out project plan, have already begun to turn their project ideas into action, or have 
an existing project or organization.  The awarded Research Assistants are going to put together some youth groups in our Choice Neighborhoods target neighborhood.   The SLC students were also inspired by their read of what Choice Neighborhoods is about – residents’ voices in how their neighborhood can and should be changed for the better.  These youth groups will work to identify solutions to neighborhood challenges that they face currently and that they are likely to face as they age.  The first meeting of the youth resident council is scheduled for Thursday, July 31st.
