The YCB is co-hosting 13 youth-led ward meetings in each of Minneapolis’s city council wards with the Minneapolis Youth Congress and city council members. The ward meetings are intended for a youth audience, and are a valuable opportunity for youth to share their ideas and experiences with local decision makers. Youth in attendance will help develop a set of recommendations that will go in the final Youth Master Plan that we will put in front of our board for approval in August. The Youth Master Plan seeks to make Minneapolis the best city for youth and children, and will encourage collaboration across city, county, school, and parks systems in accordance with the voices of youth in our city.
Please share these ward meetings with your youth contacts and networks in Minneapolis!
