Opportunities for young people

We envision a city where young people are safe, engaged, and valued.

The City is committed to young people

Our priorities for young people include:

  • Creating a culture that engages young people. We will do this with respect, cultural agility and a youth-centered approach.
  • Encouraging involvement of  young people in decisions that affect them.
  • Repairing and ending harm through reparative actions and healing-centered approaches.
  • Opening paths to economic stability. We will make these programs accessible and meaningful for young people.
  • Allowing youth to feel represented in City leadership. It encourages them to move into leadership roles themselves.
