Youth Lead the Change

In January 2014, the City of Boston launched a groundbreaking participatory budgeting (PB) process to engage Boston youth in directly deciding how to spend $1 million of the city’s capital budget. Through participatory budgeting, young Bostonians will identify projects to improve their communities, vet those projects, consider trade-offs, and vote on how to spend the $1 million.
