Today, we were awarded a grant from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs in partnership with the Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association to develop our Youth Advisory Board (YAB) and infuse youth voice (and art) into the community. We are very excited and honored to have been chosen for this Neighborhood Partnership Initiative!
With these funds, we will have the capacity to build the YAB and develop 2-3 community art projects over the summer that will engage the neighborhood in issues important to our youth.
The Advisory Board will consist of 10 youth who meet the following criteria:
- 13-18 years old and currently enrolled in a middle or high school
- Live in Standish/Ericsson or go to one of the following schools:
- Folwell Performing Arts
- St. Helena Catholic School
- Wellstone International
- El Colegio
- Roosevelt High
Youth who are interested or want to learn more should contact Lindsay: . Please consider sharing the flyer below if you know someone that might want to be involved!
