Communities for Youth Boise Gears Up for Summer

Updated: May 28

On May 13th, over 50 organizational partners (including non-profits, businesses, neighborhood groups, and city agencies) from the Communities for Youth Boise Initiative convened to plan out how to implement programming, practices, and events aimed at increasing Boise teens' levels of social connection.

Partners got to refresh their knowledge of Boise's youth survey data and the Communities for Youth upstream prevention approach, as well as re-cap the various community meetings hosted across the city during the 2023-2024 school year. Partners also learned how they can amplify messaging around supporting rich and meaningful connection for Boise teens through Let's Connect Boise.

The convening also featured collaborative workgroups focused on:

  • Building multi-generational events

  • Developing youth-specific activities and spaces

  • Identifying overlap between other youth well-being efforts and social connection

Organizations, neighborhood groups, and individual community members interested in getting involved in one of the workgroups, or generally supporting the Boise Initiative can sign up for the Boise newsletter or contact the Boise Community Contact Angie Gribble.

The Communities for Youth Boise Initiative began in 2023. It aims to bring parents, schools, city leaders, small business owners, faith leaders, teens, and other community members together with the goal of creating the best possible community for kids.
