    Thank you for sharing your story! I also work with youth from areas that the city has left out of the discussion about its future. They are incredible and I learn so much from them and their experiences in my program.

    I'd love to learn more about The Village and how it could be replicated in cities like Chicago. I've long thought that there are great ideas about innovation from the people that live in every community. It would be great to help them make their ideas come to life.
