CE Lunch Talk - Associate Director Thea Crum - March 3
“Creating a Toolkit for Youth Democratic Action in Schools”

Thea Crum, UIC Great Cities Institute, Associate Director of Neighborhoods Initiative and Greg Smith, Civics Teacher, Hyde Park Academy

Wednesday, March 3, 12pm-1pm

Learn how participatory budgeting (PB) has been implemented in schools throughout Chicago to give students real power over real money through a democratic process and how these experiences have shaped a participatory actions research process to create a new PB in Schools Toolkit. The Toolkit was created through a collaboration of PB experts and Chicago Public School administrators and teachers. It will make PB easier to implement in schools across a wide variety of models and contexts.
