Design Your Neighborhood (DYN)

seeks to engage youth in the community design process as a means to empower and inform the next generation of citizens. As cities grow and change, citizen engagement and understanding of the built environment will be crucial to the quality of our growth.

“Once you learn more about it and understand it, the more you can see the needs and the things we learned about and that's the only way to do something to help.”
