Movement City is an empowerment network for young Lawrencians ages of 10-18. It is a place where young people explore their potential through design, technology and performing arts. They can opt to participate in a wide range of highly creative economic, academic, leadership development and collective action activities.
The Goals of Movement City are:
To foster culture that is rich in connectivity, creativity and support that is shaped by young people themselves
To bring Lawrence youth together with volunteers and professionals from the fields of design, technology and performing arts to learn the basics of high-skill and creative careers
To connect youth to institutions of higher education, giving them access to opportunities for educational success
To engage youth in local projects that encourage them to improve the community and that help them strengthen their leadership skills
To involve youth in network of young people and families engaged in positive self and community development
As members of a network, young people pay annual fee of $80.00 and have the choice and opportunity to engage in a variety of ways. We also have a summer program that runs for 4 weeks and is a separate $60.00 fee.
