Youth (X)po

Engaging the Future’s Placemakers

Introducing Youth (X)po!

 

At the end of CityWorks (X)po conference last year, Roanoke’s former City Manager, Chris Morrill, led the (X)po attendees in a visioning process to hear what the community wanted to do with the energy from the conference. Well, the resoundingly idea of doing an (X)po-type event for area youth was by far the most popular choice.

So, we are going to do it for the first time in 2017! It will be a mix of formats and styles focused around empowering area youth to get engaged in community issues and become citizens of their community.

The event will be in late October or Early November. Stay tuned as we build out the programming!
