Youth Engagement Initiative
As part of its Strategic Plan, the City of Evanston has begun programming surrounding development of its Youth Engagement Initiative. Staff used the objectives outlined in the following goals as a model to develop a vision for the Youth Engagement Initiative:
* Goals 3: Generating marketable job skills for Evanston residents; and
* Goal 12: Provide opportunities for and engage Evanston youth and young adults to become active and productive citizens of the Evanston Community.
Provide opportunities for all Evanston youth and young adults to become active and productive citizens of the community through strengthening existing youth services, establishing a network of service partnerships, increasing participation within the available opportunities, creating marketable job training and placement and increasing the opportunities for social and recreational outlets for disengaged youth.
