Redwood City 2020 Hosts Groundbreaking Youth Event:

Bridge to a Better Community –
Adults and Youth Coming Together for the Future
 

Redwood City, CA - September 5, 2007 - The local collaborative organization Redwood City 2020 and the City of Redwood City are hosting a ground-breaking, community-wide youth event entitled “Bridge to a Better Community – Adults and Youth Coming Together for the Future."

It's an invitation to the whole community - business, non-profits, our youth, and residents of all ages - to come together and create new avenues of understanding between youth and adults.

The goal is simply to start a meaningful dialogue that makes Redwood City a better place for our youth.

It takes place on Friday, September 14, 2007 from 6 - 9 pm, in the multi-purpose room of Sequoia High School, 1201 Brewster Avenue.

This event marks a new beginning in bringing together our community’s youth with adults and opening real dialogue, engaging in real listening and communication, and exploring real possibilities, as we build community together.

At this workshop, youth and adults together will:

  • Create an opportunity to discuss and hear about challenges and opportunities faced by youth in our community;

  • Start a conversation that involves youth and adults thinking together about how to improve this community for the future;
  • Generate interest and energy for continued involvement.

This will be accomplished through a combination of speakers, discussion groups, “fishbowl” and facilitated conversations, and other interesting and unique interactive processes.

Planned by an energetic team of our youth and adults, together, this is just the beginning of a process that will bring dividends to the entire community today, and in the future.

The community is invited join in to learn from one another in a unique discussion and find out how we can build an even greater community. It will take all generations and all parts of the community to make this happen!
