A $494 grant supported the “Festival de la Juventud”, a day-long youth festival where young people of all ages can take part in activities such as roller skating, skateboarding, biking, 5K running race, an artisan craft sale, jewelry making, wizards’ chess, and live music, some of it provided by kid musicians.

This project demonstrated what kids can do when they get involved in planning project.
