Scott County 20 Year Vision

During the Fall of 2017, the Nashville Civic Design Center partnered with the STAND Youth Leadership Board in Scott County, Tennessee, to create a 20 year community plan that addressed its need for a healthier and more economically vibrant community. To guide them through this process, NCDC used the Citizenship in Action curriculum during an intensive weekend workshop where the students created and planned the 20 year vision. After the workshop, NCDC and the students put on a Youth Town Hall where the students presented their plans and called their community to action to support their vision. As a result of this process, the STAND Youth Leadership Board is leading their community through small, actionable steps to implement their plan, which has included homeless shelter improvements and a crosswalk for their senior center thus far.
