As a result of a workshop with the Youngstown School students last year, momentum has been gained for an economic development idea for the Village of Youngstown. On April 7, community members will gather to work towards a shared goal of economic revitalization stemming from a suggestion made by the youth of the town.
This won’t be a typical strategic planning or brainstorming session, but a fun, creative, and interactive community evening led by Monica Knight to get people’s feedback on a potential theme for Youngstown.
Monica’s facilitation seeks to combat the often fragmented ways with which we attempt to solve problems in a group setting. Attendees will think about YOUNGstersTOWN using unconventional activities to spark creative responses.
Monica was dressed appropriately when she arrived to work in Alberta at the end of January… Brrrr, winter on the prairies!
Despite suffering from a horrible cold while there, Monica can report that the “All Aboard” project in Hanna has expanded to the nearby community of Youngstown and the wide expanse known as The Special Areas.
