Vancouver-based, City Studio, is an organization that provides universities with a pathway for connecting with local government bodies, to create civic project-based learning experiences for undergraduate students. 

Why couldn't we do the same thing with high-school students?

Hi Bronwyn! Love the idea, and I think it's one of the bigger challenges confronting schools right now. How do we identify community organizations to partner with schools. And how can we ensure that these partnerships lead to meaningful work? It looks like CityStudio is doing excellent work, and I'm interested in learning more, including how we could use it as a model for other community partnerships.
