S3| Civics 101 Review and Policy Game

Session Overview

This section will begin to give youth the vocabulary (from the fields of urban planning and public health) to address community development and health issues. Understanding how to measure urban environments’ form, quality and design is an important skill for any citizen to learn. It is also one that many of us pickup later in life; teaching youth how to engage on these topics from a young age helps build their confidence and power.
