More than 500 students from local high schools have been working with civic leaders and design teams from the Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge to conduct research on the ways to ensure that their community is resilient when faced with the impact of climate change and sea level rise. Student representatives from each school will present their innovative ideas in UC Berkeley Alumni House.

The second event will be the presentations from the African American Male Achievement Initiative Kings. This is the second year of Y-PLAN’s partnership with AAMA, last year the Kings partnered with BART to propose ways BART could better connect Coliseum Station to the surrounding community. This semester the Kings have been researching ways to cultivate a college going culture in Oakland Unified School District that is inclusive of all students by considering the effects technology, social services, physical space, transportation access and many other factors have on students ability to attend and excel in college. The presentations will take place on Tuesday May 8th in the Mayor’s Conference Room in Oakland City Hall at 4-5:30pm PDT.


Y-PLAN’s third event is the proposal presentation from the students at Hiram Johnson and Health Professions High Schools. Their proposals are centered on addressing housing insecurity and homelessness as well as improving school to community relationships in order to build a more vibrant, health Sacramento. The presentations will take place Wednesday May 16th from 4-6pm at Sacramento City Hall.


The final event, Y-PLAN NYC 2018 Youth Summit, will take place on Wednesday May 23 from 10am-2pm EDT.
