New opportunity for youth to express their voices

The Education Services Department at Douglas Education Service District is kicking off a new project, Youth Design Institute. The leadership opportunity is intended for youth ages 14 -21 to express their voices and create positive changes within our community. Youth will decide what’s important and mentors will provide skill-building and relational support. The project is made possible by a grant from the Oregon Youth Development Division and is operating with youth-serving agencies and organizations throughout the county.
