Empowering Youth: 2015 Mayor's Youth Summit

Apimage1.JPGproximately 300 youth gathered at the Chavez Community Center on Tuesday, October 27 to discuss a range of issues and goals for the Santa Fe Community and young people identified in the 2015 Teen Survey. The Teen Survey was commissioned by the City of Santa Fe Children and Youth Commission and conducted by the Story of Place Institute.  The Youth Summit is an extension of the Mayor’s efforts to engage young people, promote overall well being and extend opportunities to kids growing up in Santa Fe.   
The issues identified in the Survey and discussed at the Summit included job opportunities, need to feel like more trusted members of the community, real world readiness,  financial distress for students and families, community activities for youth, bullying, mentorship, healthy food in schools, youth homelessness, immigrant youth and others.  The summit was facilitated by youth leaders who have gone through a series of trainings with the
Eagle Rock Professional Development team, a national leader in youth advocacy and programs particularly in re-engagement of disconnected youth. The outcome from the Youth Summit will be presented at the Opportunity Santa Fe Community Summit on November 18.

Community Engagement for Collective Action Planning
Review the Summary Reports from Surveys and Meetings

Over the last several months, the Santa Fe Birth to Career Collaboration has supported and partnered with the Mayor’s Children, Youth and Families Community Cabinet and several Collaborative Working Groups focused on improving birth to career outcomes in our community. Together, we've gathered community input on the needs and opportunities across early childhood to education and on to career. Through various surveys and community convenings, we've had some important findings and outcomes. These study findings, meeting outcomes, as well as the results from the Youth Summit and the Opportunity Santa Fe Community Summit, will inform and shape community-wide collaborative strategies and action plans.   
Please click on the links below to read the summary findings and preliminary recommendations from the surveys and community convening. Stay tuned for community-wide collaborative strategies and how you can be part of a movement for collective impact.
