We are excited to announce our new Hour-for-Hour Challenge!
_
This initiative is directly targeted towards municipalities and organizations in an effort to see them create a formal mechanism to regularly engage youth and provide volunteer hours for their contributions.
_
Whether it's commenting on an open house or council meeting, watching a webinar to learn about local governance, or completing an online survey - there is something for everyone!
_
Youth will benefit from these educational and inclusive experiences, and communities will learn more about the younger generations they serve.
_
Tag your municipality or an organization you want to see take on the Hour-for-Hour Challenge!

We know that now, more than ever, students and youth are experiencing difficulties connecting with their local governments and civic initiatives.

As we celebrate local government week, we look to the culture and the ways that we can leverage new perspectives and continue to build better communities and develop more informed policies.
