Junior Citizens: Creatively Connecting Children and Community

Main Street programs serve as a catalyst for an energetic downtown. Creating community connections to children can build civic duty and a greater appreciation for history while encouraging long term residency. Participants will learn how to develop and fund successful outreach techniques for children K-12. Presenters Lindsey Dotson and Sarah Marsom will provide unique insight into youth engagement, including examples of Junior Main Street programs, how to create coloring books and successful workshops on a budget, and fundraising through the Tiny Jane Project. You'll walk away with practical approaches that can be applied in any community, large or small.
