Neighborhood Vision 2025

Build Youth Resilience

Building youth resilience means creating pathways for children, youth, and young adults to access safe spaces for learning and growing, positive experiences with professionals and mentors, and opportunities for leadership and personal growth. The idea of building youth resilience is tied to the ability of local institutions to provide trauma-informed care and practice. Positive outcomes of this strategy will reinforce that MidTown supports families and will boost efforts to grow Midtown’s population, and will empower youth to take positive action and become future neighborhood leaders. To be successful, new and expanded youth programs in Midtown require long-term commitment and strong relationship building.
