Save the Date: Us and the 2020 Strategic Plan
March 9, 2020
Update: This event, along with other Strategic Plan Roundtables the week of March 26, has been canceled.
The Decatur Youth Council has announced the date for the Decatur 2020 Strategic Plan’s youth-led roundtable discussions on March 21, 2020 from 2-4 PM at Decatur Legacy Park, 500 S. Columbia Drive.
The City of Decatur is offering community service hours as an incentive for students to partake.
The discussion will be conducted by a member of the Decatur Youth Council who acts as the facilitator, according to the City of Decatur. Additionally, a scribe will be assigned at the beginning of the meeting in order to take notes about the points discussed.
The discussion will be led with a modified version of the discussion guide given to the adult roundtables. While the adults commit to meeting three times over the course of several months, the youth-led roundtable talking-points will be condensed to fit only two hours of participant’s time.
Structurally, the discussion will NOT be about wanted changes for the school system but instead for the city as a whole. Meaning, the facilitator of the discussion will limit conversation about specific school changes but gear the conversation towards the city; how the city can be more sustainable, for example.
