Healthy City works with community-based organizations to apply Community Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR) in their mapping and community-engagement work. CBPAR starts with issues and strategies to produce analysis, uses mapping technology as one tool for community engagement and focuses on communities within a geographic location, such as a neighborhood. Using CPBAR in mapping facilitates engagement, education, strategizing, and dialogue among community members--including youth--and decision-makers.

Including young people in map making allows them to contribute their unique knowledge and lived experiences as community residents. Youth can provide invaluable insight and can act as change agents advocating on behalf of their communities. Whether you are a Youth Organizer, Community Liaison or Direct Service Provider, there are a number of ways you can incorporate and share youth data and stories using a variety of free resources and tools available on to build community power.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

1) Research and map youth population data to enhance program focus and planning on
2) Upload your own data onto a map
3) Use Wikimaps to better plan, collaborate and share youth outreach strategies and stories
