Tear Down the Open House:

“Youth-ifying” Engagement

When was the last time you engaged young people in your projects? Young people are at the front lines of today’s most complex issues from the housing and affordability crisis, climate change, the opioid poisoning crisis, and many overlapping systemic issues. At the same time, youth are frequently left out of decision-making despite being left to live with the consequences the longest.

Join us for a workshop that explores how our engagement practices can be more inclusive of all ages and how centering youth in our engagements can support us in shaping a better, more resilient, and sustainable future. As award-winning youth engagement specialists, CityHive will be tapping into our years of experience and sharing lessons learned on youth engagement. Participants will walk away with clear examples, tools, and strategies to take back into their own engagement practice.
