Real Money, Real Power: Participatory Budgeting

Mar 10, 2022

10:30am – 12:00pm CT

Young people are not just future leaders, they are leaders TODAY. Participatory budgeting (PB) has proven to be a transformative practice that unlocks the power of youth leadership by equipping students with real decision-making power over part of the school budget. In this interactive workshop we’ll actually experience a school PB process together. We’ll also share learnings from the past decade of PB in North America and delve into how you can launch PB in your school or district.
