The session explores opportunities for involving youth in decision making related to public policy and community action in NYC. Youth and adult leaders from DYCD, NYC Service, Borough President’s Office, youth organizing, and citywide youth intermediaries will speak about these issues and engage funders in an interactive discussion.
Attendees will become more informed of these initiatives to involve youth in policy discussions and explore strategies for accomplishing these goals.
