Youth Design Leadership for Community Safety (YDL) Application
We’re excited to announce Youth Design Leadership for Community Safety (YDL)! Chicago Mobile Makers has teamed up with Studio Gang and Goldin Institute to offer this FREE 6-month program to students ages 13-18 who have a connection to Garfield Park. Join us for a hands-on exploration of design and change-making!

YDL will connect with larger initiatives happening in Garfield Park and participate in community-led planning and design projects focused on creating safe space, promoting community wellbeing, and increasing access to opportunity. This program will help participants establish a foundation to communicate, advocate, and make an impact through design.

YDL is possible because of the generous support of the Polk Brothers Foundation.

Participants will receive a welcome package with swag and a $1200 stipend.
