Seattle Launches Citywide Youth PB

If you’re a young person living in Seattle, consider joining other Seattle youth in managing over $700,000 this year through participatory budgeting. PBP is working alongside the City of Seattle to launch a citywide youth PB process over the next 8 months.

Seattle Participatory Budgeting is recruiting young people and youth-serving orgs to be steering committee members and oversee the process. Representatives from the Seattle Youth Commission and the City of Neighborhood Council will join youth leaders and resource organizations in Seattle to write the rules of the process in mid-December with assembly meetings beginning in January. Youth led PB is a great opportunity to create a strong platform for inclusive governance that speaks to all ages!

For information about the process visit the Seattle Department of Neighbors website.
