Methods to encourage a younger generation to participate and collaborate

As outreach and engagement practitioners, we know that one of the toughest age groups to draw into the conversation is the younger cohort between the ages of 18-25 years. This lunchtime program will build upon the importance of inter-disciplinary communication as a whole and how young professionals today are leaning towards new methods that embrace collaboration. Our guest speaker, Katie will draw upon examples from her work, such as historic building relocations that require the coordination of multiple disciplines coming together and her work with young professionals and the creation of her latest venture, Ticco, to illustrate these points. Katie will share her engagement experiences with We Are The Next, a nonprofit organization she founded to carry out construction projects in abandoned or neglected buildings and the ways the organization helped to empower youth by raising awareness about ways city buildings reflect our shared cultural identities. Youth involved in We Are the Next programs learned about historical movements and regional development, ultimately engaging with their city so their neighborhoods could thrive.

Event is FREE to attend with reservation *Lunch will be provided*
