I'm a graduate planning student looking to start a program similar to one I know of out of Berkeley ( I believe) where graduate students run planning studios with local youth. This is a permanent part of the curriculum, and needless to say - can be a very rewarding experience for both sides. I go to Pratt in Brooklyn, where our planning studios often deal with urban revitalization, poverty, and environmental racism. Our plans usually end up containing some component on youth development - a particular interest of mine.(thesis?)I'm posting in the hopes of hearing from other programs who do this or would like to, to start a dialogue.
