CREATE A CIVIC HEALTH INCUBATOR RUN BY YOUTH!

target audience: a diverse crowd in their late teens through twenties along with anyone else who is game.

create opportunities for young people to plan events that emphasize civic health in any form for the target audience. events might include: a neighborhood street party (a potluck with dancing) that simply promotes getting to know your neighbors; a meetup at a local coffee shop or bar to share community concerns and develop action plans; or a guerilla campaign to increase community service movement. 

some events could generate revenue via ticket sales. funding could be sought from local businesses.

Love the cross country collaboration!  Will be interesting to see what you learn from need-finding with the different communities.  Will needs be same? similar? different?  Can similar events meet multiple needs?
