The purpose of this training is to provide a better understanding of the city’s budget process and outline the specific role youth can play in creating and advocating for budget recommendations. Together we will make a case with the City Council for youth initiatives we care about or would like to see implemented. Because the budget process is over the course of several months, we are looking for youth between the ages of 14-24 that will be able to attend the training but also participate in ongoing meetings from October through March. Subsequent trainings will include how to prepare and present testimony.
