S5| Conduct YEAH! Assessment 1

Session Overview

This session is a fun one! It is important that youth have the hands-on experience of measuring and assessing their community themselves. This activity builds curiosity and leads to new discoveries about the community and how it is designed. Youth, in particular, have important perspectives on the places they live, learn and play in, often giving different feedback than adults regarding comfort and usability.
