Introduce the Youth Master Plan 

Intro to Youth Master Plan:  http://pasadena-library.net/teens/youth-master-plan/

 

What would you like to address the most? 

  • Diverse option of foods – PUSD appears to have addressed some of this in the last few months with the food pickups
  • Communication about resources between youth and youth leaders/mentors (example of not knowing about mental health resources if it had not been for actually physically visiting library and seeing it; others don’t know it’s there)
  • Bus costs
  • Better bike lanes

 

Which one is the one that needs to be addressed immediately? 

  • Finances (enough funding for certain teachers to teach certain classes for IB, AP, etc.)
  • Sports, staying active during quarantine
  • Staying motivated at home

 

Is there something your organization is already doing? 

  • Example of CAP offering valuable resources virtually for college info
