Civic Engagement Lunch Talk

"Creating a Toolkit for Youth Democratic Action in Schools" presented by Thea Crum, UIC Great Cities Institute, Associate Director of Neighborhoods Initiative and Greg Smith, Civics Teacher, Hyde Park Academy

Wednesday, March 3rd. 12:00pm - 1:00pm.

Learn how participatory budgeting (PB) has been implemented in schools throughout Chicago to give students real power over real money through a democratic process and how these experiences have shaped a participatory actions research process to create a new PB in Schools Toolkit. The Toolkit was created through a collaboration of PB experts and Chicago Public School administrators and teachers. It will make PB easier to implement in schools across a wide variety of models and contexts.
