Young voices are our future

December 16, 2022

Congratulations to our youth program in Auburn for winning a $30,000 grant for an improved community playground! Young people participating in Neighborhood House’s afterschool programs brainstormed the project, helped draft a proposal, collected signatures, and went on to receive the most votes in the city against other submissions.

Speaking to a 6th grader about the experience, she said, “We had a fun time and it was exciting to tell lots of people about our project!”

Special thank you to our youth engagement staff members Andy Pham and Rachael Parks for supporting these inspiring voices, and the City of Auburn for the opportunity.
