StoryLast year, the Metropolitan King County Council unanimously passed legislation calling for the development of a Youth Action Plan that will set the County’s priorities for serving its young people, from infants through adults.
A task force of experts was formed earlier this year to help develop the Youth Action Plan with accomplishments so far including developing a planning framework, agreeing to set of core principles, mapping existing partnerships and identifying a mission and vision for the Plan. Their progress is outlined in a Youth Action Plan Progress Report available to the public.
The next step for the task force is to deliver a well-informed set of recommendations on a list of topics outlined in the legislation, but first they want to hear from community members so their input can inform the Plan and shape the future of youth in the County.
The voices of children and youth—and the adults who care about them—are vital to creating a plan that can make a difference. We invite all of you who want to be involved to attend any one of the following four community conversations. Youth age 12-24 and adults of any age are welcome:
