We believe that for a community to change, students and schools are just as important as adults and local organizations. Collective Impact Lincoln is hosting a free youth community builder workshop this Sunday for community members and high-school students. Join us at Lincoln Northeast High School from noon to 3 pm.

CIL Community Organizer José Lemus talking with students at our November youth community builder workshop.

The event is a follow-up to Collective Impact Lincoln’s initial youth community builder workshop in November, but attendance at that event isn’t required to join us on Sunday. The hands-on event helps students learn how to connect with community partners and connect community partners with students who are passionate about similar issues. 

The workshop will start with a panel that will feature students from Lincoln High, Lincoln Northeast, and Lincoln North Star. Each student will be accompanied by a community member who has worked with the student, or in an area the student is interested in. Panelists will share their experiences working within the community and the schools. 

Attendees can then pick from a number of breakout sessions, including:

>  Program Manager Nancy Petitto will be leading a session about action steps, which will ask attendees to focus on one issue about which they care deeply, and then consider concrete steps to address it. 

> Community organizers Nora Brown and Isabel Salas will lead Speed Connect, which helps students get involved with different groups and organizations focused on their interests. 

> Local Community Learning Center site directors will host a breakout on how to collaborate with and get more involved with Lincoln schools. 

You can RSVP here. See you at Lincoln Northeast this Sunday!
