From the Annie E. Casey Foundation:
We are working on the framework on a council of youth to inform our work here at the foundation. While we have not figured out all the details we do know one of the critical elements will be the selection of diverse group of youth. We are asking you to think about and share contact information with youth that you may know of through your work or community involvement. While there is no one type of youth we are looking for we do have the following things we want you to consider.
-Youth Council will be made up of youth aged 18-25
-We want to make sure we have gender balance
-We want to be inclusive of LGBTQ youth
-We also want to have representation of youth who are not in school and not working
Our goal of the council is to co-design economically equitable outcomes for NPU-V residents, paying special attention to the circumstances of youth and young adults. We imagine that there will be anywhere between 8-15 members of the council.
Can you assist us in identifying youth who are also NPU-V residents by sharing their name and contact information.
At this point all we want to know is if they a have an interest in having their voices heard and giving feedback on economic justice issues.
Also if you know other people that you think I should reach out to, please reach out to:
