In its fourth year of developing local youth to be community leaders on transportation policy, the Youth Leadership Institute has been working with 13 youth leaders from communities in Half Moon Bay and Daly City to continue and expand their leadership. Funded through the Get Healthy SMC Community Implementation Funding, this year’s youth leadership academy is focusing on the intersectionality of transportation and housing.
Over the last year and a half, four communities in San Mateo County have been hard at work looking for solutions to overcome barriers to youth success. Despite busy schedules and competing priorities, over 1,000 community members showed their investment in young people’s futures by taking surveys, attending night meetings, knocking on doors, talking to neighbors and digging deep with their communities to come together around top priorities.
