Summary: Beth Cheuk, Coordinator of Community Affairs and Development; Gretchen Ellis, Human Service Planner for the City of Charlottesville; Daniel Fairley, Youth Opportunity Coordinator for the City of Charlottesville; and members of the Youth Council will present recommendations on Equity.

Working with Charlottesville City Schools and the City of Charlottesville, on January 24th and February 7th 2019 the Charlottesville City Youth Council conducted a series of student led focus groups in over 30 classrooms at Charlottesville High School and Buford Middle School. Employees of the City of Charlottesville served as scribes while the members of Youth Council conducted the focus groups. These responses were compiled into one document that highlighted the most pressing issues presented by students during the focus groups. Youth Council then presented this information to Dr. Atkins and created potential solutions to the issues suggested.
