Event asks Cleveland youth, “What do you see? How would you fix it?”

Youth in and around Cleveland are invited to share their perspective on and offer solutions to the challenges within their communities at this second annual event. Our inaugural congress drew more than 100 youth, and you can help make this year’s event bigger and better by:

  • Sharing your expertise on a topic close to you such as recreation, health, employment, safety, civil rights and education.
  • Providing resource materials for the participants.
  • Helping spread the word about the event.
  • Bringing your youth group to the event (registration info below)
