What if instead of having to scrounge together resources to work on impact projects and constantly seek permission to engage, youth were given the tools, knowledge, and resources to support cities and civic institutions in solving challenges, from housing to community engagement to public space activation?
What if youth understood how cities functioned, what their spheres of influence were and were able to not just dream up projects but be supported in doing so?
We’ve been hearing loud and clear that there’s appetite to get involved in CityHive’s existing and new projects. Most of all, we know that there’s appetite from young Metro Vancouverites to be a part of making our city more sustainable, inclusive, fun, affordable, engaged and overall, more awesome. We are happy to announce that we are now launching opportunities to get involved!
We have created two Youth Hubs: Civic Engagement and Public Spaces. Read more about each group below, and sign up here if you are interested in joining! Please sign up by March 5th.
