WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT BOULDER School, we can make new friends, join activities inside or outside of school. We can state our opinions and not be scared of being turned down right away. We can have our basic needs met pretty easily. We have lots of green spaces with lots of playgrounds for kids to play. Calm, peaceful place, beautiful view and very environmental community. Small quiet town
WHAT WE DON’T LIKE ABOUT BOULDER Seeing garbage around parks Not many job opportunities for teenagers It’s really expensive to live here.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO CHANGE? Seeing garbage around parks: *Place more garbage cans and recycling cans around through out the community *Have volunteer work revolve more around cleaning up parks. Not many job opportunities: *Lower the minimum age requirement to work *Have after school job opportunities Expensive to live here: *Offer discounts for students * Offer discounts for families who can’t afford to buy houses.
WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN A BILL OF RIGHTS FOR YOUTH: Have essential needs met- nutritious food, shelter, clothing, health care, and accessible transportation. Access to the 21 st century education that promotes success in life. Training in life skills that will prepare us to live independently. Employment opportunities A sense of hope for the future.
