To Us you Matter! Breaking Bread and Breaking the Ice
After months of study, partnerships, preparation and work, our community of 80 youth leaders, staff and volunteers convened for the beginning of our 26th Summer Civic Engagement Tour.
In the coming 7 weeks we will travel to 30 cities, towns and cultural sites on the West Coast and meet with community, tribal and government leaders in an immersive experience focused on meaningful civic
engagement for all.
Youth leaders will practice and perfect public speaking, organizing, critical thinking and forge relationships and skills to transform themselves to make positive community change. Particular themes we’ll explore together include ending child poverty, clean water rights, police and
community relationships and the vital need for civics education in school
