Event Description:

Youth ages 10 to 17 are invited to share ideas and learn from each other as they build community service plans for their own neighborhoods. Facilitated by Eileen Ryan of Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana, youth will work together to consider questions such as: What does my neighborhood need? How can I help? What have other kids done, and did it work? Where do I find resources? How do I create an action plan? Kids will be able to find out what their peers are doing and discover how they can make a difference. Don’t miss the exhibit, “The Power of Children,” which illuminates how Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White left their marks on our world. Admission to the event and a tour of the exhibit is free. Youth are encouraged to bring a new or gently-used book for The Julian Center, which provides assistance for domestic violence survivors. Classroom resources available. Presented by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana. Questions? Call 317-334-4000 or e-mail
