Annual Conference Early Bird Deadline - Sept 26th
2014 Annual Conference Feature
COMMUNITY CHANGE HAPPENS FROM WITHIN: THE PEOPLE MAKE THE PLACE
A focus on place, and what it means for grantmakers, would be incomplete without a closer look at how their individual and collective experience and voice of the people shape a place. Bringing forward the lessons and themes from our full conference experience, the closing plenary of the 2014 GCYF Annual Conference will challenge grantmakers to consider how they can intentionally and inclusively give children, youth and families a voice in programs, services and systems designed for them but not always with them – and how to leverage the skills, talents, experiences of community residents to make change.
