Community Youth Mapping

Community Youth MapMYMlogoping empowers and trains youth to map existing and potential opportunities for community involvement and activities for themselves and their families. Starting in mid-June 2018, approximately 3iStock-8262123680 teens will participate in a six-week community mapping project in the Maryvale neighborhood, a community in the west Phoenix area. Teens will be guided by field supervisors as they conduct a block-by-block inventory of businesses and organizations in the community to identify health and social services, resources, and other opportunities available to youth and their families.  The data collected by teens will be used as a foundation to create an app for youth that provides information on resources within the Maryvale area, as well as an opportunity to inform the community about  gaps in youth services.

Weekly enrichment training will provide teens additional opportunities to develop skills in areas such as healthy relationships, stress management, teambuilding, and nutrition.  The "Map My Maryvale" program runs June 13 to Aug. 3.
