Chestnut Hill Neighborhood Solutions

Chestnut Hill Neighborhood Solutions

LEAD Academy's Freshman Seminar went through the Citizenship in Action: Community Design 101 curriculum. For their final project, the students had an option of focusing on either gentrification/affordable housing, or walkability in their neighborhood. The student's researched the issues, and created proposals for solutions that included steps for implementation. Each class period voted for what they believed was the best project, and implemented them through a Civic Design Showcase for their community.
