Come to this event at Gresham Library to submit your ideas on how to spend federal tax dollars for COVID recovery in your community. This space is for youth to participate but all are welcome.
We're hosting a series of events for young people in our communities to share their ideas for Oregon's first participatory budgeting process for COVID relief.
Assemblies go a little something like this:
- Youth leaders and supporting adult staff welcome and guide guests in the space
- Guests register, check-in to receive materials, and get familiar with the food and snacks available, along with the child care services offered
- Guests move through different stations, starting with an area to learn what participatory budgeting is
- Walk through Youth Voice, Youth Vote program values and project themes to help inspire ideas for COVID recovery
- Brainstorm ideas alone or with peers
- Look at ideas generated from past events or from participants online
- Bring ideas to the next station to sign up on the civic tech platform and submit ideas
- Stop by the photo booth and show off your bright ideas and the friends you came with
- Add your name to the raffle after completing activities at the various stations
