Details

Are you a young person or community member interested in discussing Youth Voice and Advocacy in Pittsburgh?

Join us in a brainstorming session and take a hands-on role in the creation process for the 2019 Inclusive Innovation Summit. Utilize this opportunity to share your ideas, grow your network, and collaborate with others to create program proposals.

The Inclusive Innovation Team will be hosting three human-centered brainstorming sessions. For our first session, Youth Voice and Advocacy, we don't want the discussions to simply be ABOUT youth, we want them to INCLUDE youth.

If you have a young person in your life between the ages of 12 and 18, we encourage you to invite them to share their voice, perspective, and ideas. All youth under the age of 14 must be in the presence of an adult or family member age 14 or over. Photo permission forms will be available. Representation in photos is not required.

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Goals for Meetup:
1. Generate ideas leading to potential Summit proposals
2. Bring community together
3. Foster collaboration through brainstorming and discussion
4. Encourage attendees to maintain new connections after the session
