Youth event asks, "What do you see? How would you fix it?"
Registration is now open for the 4th annual Youth Solutions Congress, where Cuyahoga County youth are invited to share their perspective on and offer solutions to the challenges they see in their community. It will be held Saturday, March 25th at Cleveland State University's Main Classroom building.
The event is free, but space is limited. School and civic clubs are welcome to attend in groups. Register online at neighborhoodleadership.org.
