Youth Lead the Change: Idea Collection Workshop

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Grove Hall


In this workshop, the goal is to collect as many ideas, from as many eligible youth, from as many backgrounds (cultural, socio-economic, neighborhood, etc.) as possible. Ideas can range from one sentence suggestions to improve an aspect of life in Boston, to more fully fledged project outlines involving locations, specific changes, and more. Ideas of all kinds are OK. Some ideas will be more specific than others, but we want to hear all voices at this point in the process. It is the YLC Committee’s job later in the process to sort these ideas and create a ballot that represents them.

    Youth Lead the Change (YLC) gives young people power over one million dollars of the City's capital budget. The process is led by youth in Boston.

    The Youth Lead the Change program is a youth-led participatory budgeting program that gives young people ages 12-22 real power over one million dollars of the City of Boston’s budget every year. Boston’s youth have been allocating capital funds to innovative projects in neighborhoods across the City since 2014.

    The program is led by the Youth Lead the Change Committee of the Mayor’s Youth Council and the Office of Youth Engagement and Advancement. Anyone aged 12 to 22 who lives, works, or goes to school in the City of Boston is invited to participate in this process by submitting ideas, and voting on the finalists.
