Listen Up Saint Paul!

We need YOUR help to learn more about how Saint Paul youth imagine their afterschool opportunities. Afterschool builds youth success so use your VOICE to build a city where young people succeed!

Throughout the summer, 10 young people will be joining our Sprockets Community Engagement Team to carry out the Listen Up St. Paul! Youth Engagement project. The team will be engaging other youth ages 12-18 across Saint Paul through surveys and interviews to learn more about:

  • How youth in St. Paul envision their afterschool opportunities
  • Reasons young people in St. Paul are not accessing afterschool and why

We hope this project will empower our research team and the young people we hear from, to inform and impact accessible afterschool opportunities in St. Paul.  We plan to share the information gathered with youth and families, afterschool program staff, funders, policy makers, and other partners connected to youth. By listening to our young people, we hope to continue building a city guided by them and supportive of their success. 

Please share about this project with your networks! Check out the flyers below to see how else you can support to make this summer a success!
